The author looks at the state of the contemporary relationship between science and theology and reminds all concerned that neither discipline ought to claim exclusivity as the way of knowing all about the world. He shows how those who take their Christian faith seriously and with integrity need to cultivate more flexibility in their understanding of doctrine and scripture, particularly those passages whose power has been shown to lie in the symbolic and the mythical, rather than the literal and the physical.
