Summary Annotation At the heart of "By Design" are two interrelated movements. One is the "science and religion dialogue," which stretches from the laboratories of Nobelists to the inner sancta of the Vatican. This dialogue attempts to build bridges between two worlds formerly thought to be incompatible and implacably hostile. The other is the intelligent design movement, which by reviving a natural theology of design in nature has challenged the Darwinian strongholds in science and public education. After reading "By Design" we understand how what was once a battleground between God and science is now becoming a meeting ground
