    The relationship between Christianity and science, and competing philosophies of science, has become one the most pressing subjects of the twenty-first century for Christians. Yet no reference work exists that covers this terrain adequately. The Dictionary of Christianity and Science fills this significant need with an up-to-date, peer-reviewed, and fair-to-all-camps reference work that focuses on the intersection between science and Christian belief.

    Representatives of leading perspectives present their arguments vigorously but respectfully in these advocacy essays, allowing readers to compare options and draw their own conclusions. The dictionary is also fully cross-referenced and entries include references and recommendation for further reading.
    Edited by Paul Copan, Tremper Longman III, Christopher L. Reese, and Michael G. Strauss, The Dictionary of Christianity and Science features a top-notch lineup of over 140 contributors in the fields of biblical studies, theology, philosophy, history, and various sciences. A unique reference work, it will be useful for scholars, pastors, students, and any Christian wanting to better understand the most relevant issues and ideas at the intersection of Christian faith and science.
