The Oxford Handbook of Religion and Science is a single-volume introduction to the debate on religion and science, written by the leading experts. The field of ‘religion and science’ is exploding in popularity among academics as well as the general reading public. Spawning an increasing number of conferences and courses, this field has shown an unprecedented rate of growth in recent years. Making no pretence to encyclopaedic neutrality, each article defends a major intellectual position – at the heart of the book is a series of ‘pro’ and ‘con’ papers, covering each of the current ‘hot topics’ (such as evolution versus creation, naturalism versus the supernatural). In addition to treatments of questions of methodology and implications for life and practice, the book includes sections devoted to the major scientific disciplines, the major world religions, and the main sub-disciplines in this exciting and ever-expanding field of study.

Keywords: evolution; creation; naturalism; supernatural; methodology; implications; life; practice; major world religions
