Dr. Christopher Southgate is Lecturer and Director of Modular Studies at the University of Exeter in England.
"Bringing together an all-British cast of eight academics with specialties in theology, biochemistry, genetics and science education, Southgate has designed a resource ideal for science-and-religion courses. Several student or reader exercises are spread throughout the text." (Science & Theology News, October 2005) 'makes a good read for someone wishing to find a balance between religious teachings and scientific findings' (Methodist Recorder) 'This new edition [is] the most broadly-based, maturely considered and lucidly written science-religion overview in the English language. For me, as for Arthur Peacocke, quoted on the cover, it is "an irreplaceable resource".' (Neil Spurway, ESSSAT News 16.2)"
