The Edge of Reason?: Science and Religion in Modern Society

Book Overview
Confrontation between science and religion has defined much public debate about religion in recent years, most lately in bestsellers portraying a clash between scientists and religious believers, such as Richard Dawkins The God Delusion and Sam Harriss The End of Faith or Letter to a Christian Nation. But what does this clash mean for society? This collection of essays gives voice to social scientists, natural scientists and theologians whose experience holds direct relevance on these major issues, and encourages a new, more forgiving dialogue between these two huge forces in modern society.
