Biology and Ideology: From Descartes to Dawkins

I just received a review copy of a book (thank you very much, Scot McKnight) that I’m very much looking forward to: Biology and Ideology: From Descartes to Dawkins (Denis R. Alexander and Ronald L. Numbers, eds).  I’m familiar with and enjoy both of the editors’ previous works and the various chapter contributors look like great selections.

At first glance, it appears to be written primarily from a historical perspective, much like a book I previously reviewed for Scot’s site, that was also edited by Numbers (Galileo Goes to Jail: http://scienceandtheology.wordpress.com/2010/07/03/galileo-goes-to-jail/).  I’ll be blogging about the book a bit here and will be posting a full review for Scot’s Jesus Creed website as well.

For those of you that would like a sneak peek at the book, Denis Alexander, has written a short article plugging it on the Huffington Post (link below).

    Justin,

    I have a copy as well – and will post on it, although I don’t know when I’ll start. I does look like a good book.
