Blackwell Companion on Jesus Creed

One of the regular contributors to Jesus Creed, Scot McKnight's blog, has started writing about the articles in my new Companion to Science and Christianity (see post about that here)  That's kind of fun.  The blogger goes (mostly) anonymously by the initials RJS, but I have learned that she is a scientist at the University of Michigan.

One of the things we tried to do in the book was to broaden the conversation from the typical (and still marquee topics) of cosmology and evolution.  She has highlighted this feature by starting off talking about a couple of the articles from the Human Sciences sections of the book.  These have to do with psychology and cognitive science--one by a believer, one by an atheist.  You can find the individual posts here  and here.

RJS does a nice job summarizing and pulling out the salient points of the articles.  She also asks perceptive questions.  The comments to the posting are more uneven in their quality, but there are a few threads worth perusing.
