Western society has been struggling with the respective roles of science and religion for thousands of year, and it is anything but dull! Case in point: this age-old conflict is central to Dan Brown's action thriller Angels and Demons, in which these two long-time rivals square off when scientists capture antimatter, and in so doing validate a scientific-based explanation of Creation. In Brown's thriller, as with Galileo's discoveries, the "God particle" threatens the Church since the "discovery might begin to bridge the gap between science and religion" (p. 523.) It leaves the Church struggling to answer the question, "What role does the Church play if science explains creation?" Exploring the Gap between Science and Religion is more than a book. It is an invitation to you to explore for yourself the key issues residing at the very heart of this conflict. By taking a neutral and third position - then explaining them with graphics - the author offers unique insights and poses thought-provoking questions. So, why would you want explore the gap? Because it gives you the opportunity to wrestle with the key issues central to this ancient conflict. If you are an atheist, it provides insights into what we see occurring in religion. If you are a religious person, it provides a solid foundation upon which to grow in your relationship with God while celebrating science's discoveries. If you are not sure if God exists, it provides you an alternative to science and religion in making your decision.
