I like historian Ronald Numbers’ material on the history of science and religion interaction – including the article with NZ historian John Stenhouse entitled ‘Antievolutionism in the Antipodes: From Protesting Evolution to Promoting Creationism in New Zealand’. This latest book by Numbers looks like it will have some interesting pieces in it too. See Harvard University Press: Galileo Goes to Jail and Other Myths about Science and Religion by Ronald L. Numbers. While many people portray science and religion’s relationship as a simple dualism, the historical context is often far more complex than that.
