Where the Conflict Really Lies: Science, Religion and Naturalism - Alvin Plantinga

Where The Conflict Really Lies: Science, Religion, & Naturalism - Alvin Plantinga

Plantinga's conclusion in this book: That there is only superfical conflict between science and theistic belief (really nothing more than metaphysical add-ons to the sound theories of evolution, the big bang, ext.), but actually deep concord between science and theism. On the other hand, there is superficial concord and deep conflict between science and naturalism. He defends his conclusion eloquently, and helps show once again (if there ever was any serious doubt) that religious belief is completely compatible with science, and defendable and respectable in philosophy.
