About the Book

Fatjer Robert Spitzer, S.J.,Ph.D., President of the Magis Center, has this to say about "Science versus the Church":

"A physicist, Dr. Robert Kurland, responds to six supposed conflicts between science and the Catholic Church in this illuminating, easy-to-understand, well-illustrated volume. These conflicts concern historical figures (e.g. Galileo), creation ex nihilo, universal design, evolution, a transphysical soul, and miracles. Kurland not only shows that there is no conflict between contemporary science and the teachings of the Catholic Church, but also reveals the omissions, misunderstandings, and errors of those who contend that there is. In so doing, he sheds considerable light on the scientific, philosophical, and theological nuances of these six complex issues as well as the serendipitous complementarity between reason and revelation. I recommend this book particularly to those who find themselves confused by recent false allegations of a contradiction between science and faith. [emphasis added]"
