This book offers the first wide-ranging survey of the history of the encounter between evangelical Protestantism and science. Comprising papers by such distinguished scholars as John Headly Brooke, James R. Moore, Ronald Numbers, and George Marsden, this collection shows that the questions of science have been central to the history of evangelicalism in the United States, as well as in Britain and Canada. It is an invaluable resource for understanding the historical context of contemporary political squabbles such as the debate over the status of "creation science" and the teaching of evolution.Table of ContentsIntroduction: Placing Evangelical Encounters with Science Pt.
