Summary

In this intriguing history, James Gilbert examines the confrontation between modern science and religion as these disparate, sometimes hostile modes of thought clashed in the arena of American culture. Beginning in 1925 with the infamous Scopes trial, Gilbert traces nearly forty years of competing attitudes toward science and religion. ''Anyone seriously interested in the history of current controversies involving religion and science will find Gilbert's book invaluable.''--Peter J. Causton, Boston Book Review ''Redeeming Culture provides some fascinating background for understanding the interactions of science and religion in the United States. . . . Intriguing pictures of some of the highlights in this cultural exchange.''--George Marsden, Nature ''A solid and entertaining account of the obstacles to mutual understanding that science and religion are now warily overcoming.''--Catholic News Service ''[An] always fascinating look at the conversation between religion and science in America.''--Publishers Weekly
