KIRKUS REVIEW

One hears very little these days about the ""irreconcilable conflict between Science and Religion"". Man's knowledge or experience with each has so deepened and expanded that he finds himself more and more ready to conclude that truth is one and indivisable, and that any apparent conflict comes only from man's still limited understanding. The Rev. Waller E. Stuermann, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Tulsa here presents a study of the relations between science and religion, and he does so with added competence that he is also trained as a scientist, having taught mathematics and worked in the engineering laboratories of General Motors. His concern is to demonstrate that both science and religion, when properly understood and applied can be mutually and cooperatively helpful to man. Science and religion, he contends, are essentially methods of thinking and acting, not primarily bodies of knowledge. This is an important contribution to an open-ended inquiry in which the last word may never be spoken. These words are interesting and to the point, and readily understood by the serious reader.
