Templeton Science and Religion Series
Series Editors: J. Wentzel van Huyssteen and Khalil Chamcham
Project Editor: Larry Witham
In our fast-paced and high-tech era, when visual information seems so dominant, the need for short and compelling books has increased. This conciseness and convenience is the goal of the Templeton Science and Religion Series. We commissioned scientists in a range of fields to distill their experience and knowledge into a brief tours of their specialties. They are writing for a general audience, readers with interests in the sciences or the humanities, which includes religion and theology.
The relationship between science and religion has been likened to four types of doorways. The first two enter a realm of “conflict” or “separation” between these two views of life and the world. The next two doorways, however, open to a world of “interaction” or “harmony” between science and religion. We have asked our authors to enter these latter doorways to judge the possibilities. They begin with their sciences and, in aiming to address religion, return with a wide variety of critical viewpoints.
