The best book on science and religion I have read! Michael Hanby's "No God, No Science?"

The science and religion discussion is awash with books—the good, the bad, and the ugly. But after a while one can start to get the feeling that many of those books are going over the same old ground again and again.

That is not the case with Michael Hanby's No God, No Science? Theology, Cosmology, and Biology (Chichester, UK: Wiley-Blackwell, 2013). This book really has something new and explosive to say. It is far and away the most stimulating and thought-provoking science and religion book I have read.

Rather than summarize it, here is the author himself giving a sixteen-minute overview.

Be warned. The book is VERY long, VERY expensive, and VERY intellectually dense and demanding. But be aware: it is freaking awesome!
