About the Author

Jennifer Baldwin is director of Grounding Flight Wellness Center.


Now that 'post-truth' has dictionary status, Pontius Pilate's cynically rhetorical 'What is truth?' arises as a disturbingly real, and really political, question. No longer can academics afford our habitual relativism. What better venue for curating the multiform width of truth-talk than within the dialogue of religion and science? What may seem like a rather esoteric set of transdisciplinary essays bristles from the first page on with vivid and timely examples, communicative clarity, and stunning politico-eco-religio-cultural relevance. -- Catherine Keller, Drew University
Finally! A critical look at the politically charged discussion of religion and science. But, rather than pitting both sides against each other, as many texts do, Navigating Post-Truth and Alternative Facts brings the two together in an unapologetic manner that is rooted in both religion and science. This is an excellent edited volume by Jennifer Baldwin and one that promises to give facts, not just opinion. In this age of post-truth and attacks on science, this book is truly needed. Well worth the read! -- Daniel White Hodge, North Park University
