"Science is about explanation. Religion is about meaning." That makes sense to me, a Great Partnership indeed.

One of the best books I've read this year. We have purchased a copy for our library and I'm recommending it to everyone I know.

Lot of great information, about religion and philosophy, also about dissenting views. I like the way science and religion are laid out, and, also, interconnected. Some quotes: "science is universal. Meaning never is. Faith is about making meaning in covenant together..." My favorite: "meaning is made, not discovered".
