About-

Religion has influenced the development of science over the past two millennia. The Truth about Science and Religion tells the story of their interaction. The book examines the origin of the universe, evolutionary processes, Christian beliefs, the history of science, what being human really means, and what science and religion have to say about these ideas.

The Truth about Science and Religion is designed to help explore personal views on science and religion, offering questions for discussion at the end of each chapter. The book provides the historical and scientific background and the philosophical insight needed to think through issues of science and religion and their influences on personal beliefs. Metaphors, analogies, and comparisons are used to simplify complex topics so that any reader can engage with the key concepts. Unlike other books in this field, The Truth about Science and Religion follows a chronological scheme, treating increasingly personal topics as the book moves through cosmology, evolution, the life of Jesus, and the lives of several great scientists to regain a unified view of science and religion in today's world.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Chock full of ideas, explanations, stories, and thought-stirring questions, Dr. Fleming's book will lead readers to reflect deeply about their own faith and their grasp of science. The discussion questions and bibliography alone make this perhaps the 'go-to' book on Christianity and science for today. Highly recommended."
--Terry Morrison, Emeritus Director of Faculty Ministry, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship

"Competent scientist and true believer, Professor Fleming asserts that 'science and religion are intertwined like DNA' . . . Fleming presents abstruse matters in a clear and accessible manner. This work merits wide distribution among students and faculty and all people truly searching for answers to the mysteries of the universe and humankind."
--James Chukwuma Okoye, Duquesne University

"In the modern West, the relationship of science and faith has tended to be one of either hostile antagonism or uneasy coexistence. Fraser Fleming argues persuasively for a third way: mutual cooperation. With an irenic spirit and in accessible terms, Fleming reviews the role of Christian faith in the development of science, particularly cosmology and human development, and finds throughout a consistent invitation from God to a relationship of love with him and others."
--Dennett Buettner, Pastor, Church of the Savior, Ambridge, Pennsylvania

"Fleming delves right into the most vexing questions in the Christianity/science debate, but he isn't throwing bombs--he's asking deep questions. It is refreshing to see a topic that can be so contentious discussed so reasonably and thoroughly."
--Brenton DeBoef, Professor of Chemistry, University of Rhode Island

Bio(s)-

Fraser Fleming (1964-) was born in Waipawa, New Zealand. He moved to Canada after his undergraduate degree to obtain a PhD in organic chemistry. An intense desire to understand how science and religion might both be true developed into a life-long pursuit during his graduate education. For twenty years he taught chemistry, and occasionally science and religion, at Duquesne University. Then for two years, he served as a Program Director in the Division of Chemistry at the National Science Foundation. Although his primary research is focused on developing new reactions of use in preparing pharmaceuticals, he has taught several courses on science and religion including a study abroad course "Big Bang to Modern Man: A History of Science and the Influence of Religion." He has given presentations on the intersection of science and religion and has taught numerous classes on Christian topics at local churches. He is currently a Professor of Organic Chemistry and Head of the Department of Chemistry at Drexel University in Philadelphia.
