    What is the nature of the relationship between science and religion? When do they conflict? And how do they influence each other in the pursuit of knowledge and truth? While conventional wisdom says that science and theology must perpetually clash, they have actually been partners in an age-old adventure.

    If you could sum up Science and Religion in three words, what would they be?

    I can't stop listening to this course. It is deeply interesting, very well reasoned and entertaining too. Dr. Principe covers most fallacies of reasoning related to this topic. I learned that the schism between science and religion is overstated and why. I gained new respect for those who grappled with the search for truth long before me and a greater respect for my own process. The course answered my questions and entirely exceeded my expectations. Dr. Pincipe combines a sharp mind and wonderful style with a great sense of humor. Best non fiction I've listened to at Audible. Bravo Dr. Principe!


    Any additional comments?

    Wonderful book for people attempting to understand and balance faith and intellect.

    What are little boys made of? It used to be frogs, snails, and puppy dog tails, but today it is MTV, ADD, and STDs. So how do parents raise their sons to be respectful and responsible young men in a toxic culture that relentlessly undermines masculine virtues such as moral strength, self-restraint, and respect for women? By letting boys be boys.

    Had I read the negative reviews, I never would have bought this book! Thankfully, I didn't do my homework.

    This book is gold. My only regret is I didn't have it for the raising of my older kids as it would have saved us a lot of pain and regret. The narrator's voice is a little preachy, but inoffensive if your focus is on the content. The material is excellent. Thanks Dr. Meeker for a great resource!
