Practical Mystic uses the figure of Eddington to shows how religious and scientific values can interact and overlap.

Religion and science are arguably the two most powerful social forces in the world today.

This unique book provides the best available introduction to the burning debates in this controve. Religion is weaved throughout the book. The author defends the belief of multiple religions at once, and that as people, we all have choices to believe in one, three, or even more religions.

This book, which marks the one hundredth anniversary of The Terry Lecture Series, offers a unique perspective for anyone interested in the debate between science and religion in America. Harold W. Attridge is the Dean and Lillian Claus Professor of New Testament at the Yale Divinity School.
