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. Here for the first time is a single-volume introduction to the debate, written by the leading experts. Making no pretense to encyclopedic neutrality, each chapter 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 Handbook 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.

Philip Clayton is Ingraham Professor at the Claremont School of Theology and a Professor of Philosophy and Religion at the Claremont Graduate University.Review:
`This volume offers an impressive combination of breadth and clarity: breadth in the inclusion of experts from all the major world religions and scientific disciplines, and clarity in focusing attention on the similarities and differences among these diverse traditions and disciplines. Of
particular interest is a section presenting pro and con views on eight issues currently debated in this burgeoning interdisciplinary field.'
