'With the rise of modern science, the age-old belief in a universe made by God has been threatened. Can one continue to believe in God, or has religion become an outmoded superstition? Many of our greatest minds have debated these questions, and the drive to reconcile God and science is rife with human drama - murder trials, global journeys, breakthrough discoveries, church schisms, and world wars. This book tells the story of our heroic, optimistic struggle to know the truth, to dare to use all of our faculties and talents to take the measure of God.' 'For over a century, the annual Gifford Lectures have provided the premier venue for the finest scientific and theological minds in the world to speak to 'all questions about man's conception of God or the Infinite.' Endowed in 1887 by Scottish judge Adam Gifford, the Giffords are a window into the conflict between the natural sciences and the claims of religion. The list of Gifford lecturers is a veritable Who's Who of modern scientists, philosophers, and theologians: from William James to Karl Barth, Albert Schweitzer to Reinhold Niebuhr, Niels Bohr to Iris Murdoch, Hannah Arendt to Carl Sagan - and includes eight Noble Prize winners.' 'Some Gifford lecturers have raced to show that science could not possibly undermine religious belief, while others have tried to reconcile science and faith, and even to show that the tools of science - facts and reason - could support knowledge of God. Whether the Gifford lecturers have been scientists or theologians, skeptics or believers, their task has always been to argue whether God exists and how we know. The Measure of God offers the inside story of the genius and drama that have fueled our continuing debate over God and science.'--BOOK JACKET.
