Why the science and religion dialogue matters voices from the International Society for Science and Religion ( )
7 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 966 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Each world faith tradition has its own distinctive relationship with science, and the science-religion dialogue benefits from a greater awareness of what this relationship is. In this book, members of the International Society for Science and Religion (ISSR) offer international and multi-faith perspectives on how new discoveries in science are met with insights regarding spiritual realities. The essays reflect the conviction that & ldquo;religion and science each proceed best when they & rsquo;re pursued in dialogue with each other, and also that our fragmented and divided world would benefit more

Spiritual healing : scientific and religious perspectives by Fraser N Watts( Book )
12 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"There has recently been much interest in the relationship between science and religion, and how they combine to give us a 'binocular' perspective on things. One important phenomenon which has been neglected in recent work is the concept of spiritual healing. This edited collection explores a variety of approaches to spiritual healing from different religious points of view, identifying both what it is and how it works. The authors also explore the biological and psychological processes, open to scientific enquiry, through which healing may be mediated. As such, this book indicates the central proposition that religious and scientific perspectives answer different questions about healing, and there is not necessarily any conflict between them"--
Head and heart : perspectives from religion and psychology ( )
4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Theologians and religious figures often draw a distinction between religion of the '"head" and religion of the "heart," but few stop to ask what the terms "head" and "heart" actually denote. Many assume that this distinction has a scriptural basis, and yet many Biblical authors used the word "heart" as a synonym for "mind." In fact, there isn't a strict separation of the two concepts until the modern period, as in Pascal's famous claim that "the heart has its reasons that reason can not know." Since then, many other philosophers and theologians have made a similar distinction

Evolution, religion, and cognitive science : critical and constructive essays by Fraser N Watts( Book )
4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An increasingly influential area of research in the field of cognitive science of religion is concerned specifically with exploring the relationship between the evolution of the human mind, the evolution of culture in general, and the origins and subsequent development of religion. This research has lately exerted a strong influence on many areas of religious studies but, for some, the so-called 'evolutionary cognitive science of religion' remains a deeply problematic enterprise. This book's primary aim is to engage critically and constructively with this complex and diverse body of research from a wide range of perspectives
