Science and Faith: What is the Problem?
by Richard A. Prideaux & Anthony R. Pepper
A physicist and a theologian explore the limits of science and the challenge of faith in God in a postmodern world. A resource book for senior students, teachers and anyone who cares about the future of the planet and how we live on it.
The two authors tackle the vitally important area of science and religion and provide a valuable overview and useful guide. They tell the stories, clarify the issues, fi ll the gaps, provide the background and correct common mistakes.
“The book provides a good balance of breadth of subject and depth of understanding. Written for non-specialist readers, this book will challenge all who read it to think through these issues more deeply.”
Canon Dr Peter Adam, Vicar Emeritus St Jude’s Anglican Church, Carlton; formerly Principal Ridley Melbourne
