Great little book. Lays out the history of the conflict between science and religion in a succint, yet clear manner. There are some chapters in the middle of the book that delve into particle physics and quantum mechanics that are very dense and require several readings to absorb completely, though. Being a particle physicist himself, Stenger dominates these subjects but doesn't quite have the ability of Carl Sagan and Richard Dawkins to explain complex concepts in an easy to grasp manner to non-experts. Still, a great and enjoyable read for anyone wanting to read an introductory and comparative work of scientific and religious epistemologies. Highly recommended.
