Larson&Ruse Bibliographic Essay: Where to Look from Here

Posted By Randall D. Isaac, Monday, December 11, 2017

At the end of their book, Larson and Ruse include a most helpful bibliographic essay. Far more informative than a mere listing of works, they comment and put in perspective a few key seminal works related to each chapter. This alone is worth the price of the book for anyone doing serious research on faith and science.


This concludes the series of comments and excerpts I gathered while reading the book. I would be most grateful if some of the few of you who actually read some of these posts might submit comments on what you see as most valuable—or not—in the book as you perceive it here. I will base my review on these notes. In deference to the priority of the publisher (PSCF) who commissioned this review, I will not post my review until it is published. Suffice it to say that I found the book very helpful. While not presenting any major new ideas, it collected a superb comprehensive view of several centuries of complex interactions between the science and faith communities. I will highly recommend it.
