Review of the hardback: 'This book is an example of inter-faith dialogue at its most constructive ... This collection is a magnificent achievement. It left me hoping for a thoroughgoing formulation of 'theology and science' which started from what this book lays before us. I venture that almost all we need for the renewal of that field could be found in this exceptional volume.' Church Times
