Science and Religion: Interpersonal Dialogue, Discussion and Debate is a unique handbook for college students and adults interested in exploring the persuasive and rhetorical strategies surrounding today's fashionable topics in science and religion. Offered in three accommodating sections, John Ross presents valuable chapters on Humans, Communication, and Language; the Importance and Meaning of Interpersonal Dialogue; and a very timely chapter entitled Avenues of Dialogue: Dissimilarity, Discord and Alliance. Part II explores captivating issues surrounding Faith, the After-Life, Apologetics, and Atheistic Scientism. There is also an innovative section on the human brain, higher intelligence, and even on the questionable phenomena of neuroethology, UFO cults, and the disputable God Helmet. The final chapters explore contemporary miracles, creation accounts, astrobiology, and the current challenges surrounding SETI in its quest for extraterrestrial life. Ross eloquently addresses the possibilities of alien life and the resulting consequences and challenges it brings for Biblicists in the world of Christian fundamentalism. The book also includes a synopsis of the major world religions and a final section entitled Group Presentation Models in Science and Religion. This handbook is unique in that it smartly combines principles of communication, rhetoric, and public speaking with contemporary issues in science, theology, and religion.
