The best introductory book on Science and Christianity

User's Guide to Science and Belief by Michael Poole

I think this is an excellent book and have used it for several courses I have taught.
It is easy to read and considers some basic and fundamental questions that are often a stumbling block:
the role of language, what is an explanation?, the nature of faith, rationality, and evidence; the Galileo affair, miracles, ...

However, a more powerful recommendation is not mine but several students in these courses who have emphasized to me how helpful it is to them.
