This book brings together the latest research in education in relation to science and religion. Leading international scholars and practitioners provide vital insights into the underlying debates and present a range of practical approaches to teaching science and religion in the classroom at all levels. Key themes include the origin of the universe, the theory of evolution, the nature of the human person, the nature of science, Artificial Intelligence and the laws of nature. These themes are explored in a range of international contexts. The book provides a valuable resource for teachers, students and researchers in the fields of education, science, religious education and the growing specialist field of science and religion and also a key collection of research and thought for those engaged in research in science education and religious studies. Chapters include critical analysis of long-established presumptions, reflection on new developments and the presentation of empirical research in science and religion education from around the world. Science education and religious education are uncomfortable bedfellows. This book, written in part as a response to the – perhaps too clear – accounts of Ian Barbour, provides suitably complex and nuanced pictures of how science and religion are dealt with in schools. Whatever the views of specialists, children and young people ‘receive’ an education in both science and religion: hearing their voices is refreshing in such a serious academic account. - Julian Stern, Professor of Education and Religion, York St John University, UK 'Science and Religion in Education’ offers a fascinating and diverse collection of chapters surveying the current state of thinking about how science and religion can be understood in education. The volume includes empirical studies demonstrating patterns of thinking among learners and accounts of interventions to develop student understanding, alongside a broad range of perspectives to illuminate the topic. The book offers a wealth of thought-provoking material for anyone interested in the natures of science and religion, their relationship(s), or their representation within curriculum. - Professor Keith S. Taber, University of Cambridge, UK The book, Science and Religion in Education, is a compelling read for current and future generations of academic researchers and teachers who wish to explore the fascinating intersect between science education and religious studies. The research findings and insights presented by these international scholars offer new dimensions on contemporary practice. - Vaille Dawson, Professor of Science Education, the University of Western Australia
