On Requested References

Given my interest in the interchange between science and religion, Debra @ Breathelighter asked me to post a few books for those wanting to know more. Besides, her request made me feel good, plus I know she enjoys when I post about this topic.

In order to provide a range of sources, I organized the books into thematic groups. Some of the books I reviewed here, so I also linked them as Past post.

FYI: I found many of these books through local libraries and inter-library loan systems.

The organizations list provide bountiful resources, including essays.

  1. I am just thrilled with this list, Frank. Thank you so much. I think it’s possible that the university library will have many of these titles. I can’t wait to find out. One of my closest friends is as interested as I am in this topic, so I’ll be sharing. Other than the Templeton Foundation I am not familiar with any of the organizations, so this is going to be fun! I will be out of town for a few days, but when I get back… :-)

    • Debra,
      It’s my pleasure to get this list to you … and it seems a few others like it too. With all the libraries in your area, you should have no problem tracking these down! Keep me informed about what you’ve read. Safe travels.

  2. What a fabulous list. I have read a couple off the list already, now I will have to add the rest for future reading. You and I have similar curiousities and interests. I didn’t bookmark this time, simply printed this one and will carry it along for my next trip to local bookstores (used and otherwise), I love adding to my library!

  3. Reading the Who We Are’s and the About’s of the organizations on your list tells much about mankind’s age old battle for knowledge against those who have a vested interest in maintaining ignorance.

  4. Thanks. I may have to bookmark this one. I just got The Faith of Scientists in their own words by Nancy Frankenberry, although I haven’t had any time to devote to it yet. I’m hoping to post about it as I read it.

Comment with respect.
