While some contemporary observers argue science and faith are inevitably in conflict, professor Allan Chapman demonstrates that is not the case in Slaying the Dragons: Destroying Myths in the History of Science and Faith. The author, who teaches the history of science at Oxford University, takes on the mythology that has developed about the relationship of science and faith and addresses misconceptions about key events, such as Galileo’s trial. It is an enjoyable read and a helpful guide to the myths that have developed around this topic.
