Reviews

"[Evans'] surprising conclusion--that the problem is not that religion and science cannot engage in a good public debate, but that we don't have good forums and good representatives for carrying on those debates--is subtle but important."--BOOM (11/01/2015)
"Evans' use of diverse methods is innovative. He moves between quantitative analysis and in-depth interviews, a unique approach to capture the multi-faceted cultural processes that underlie public discourse."--Sociology of Religion
"Evans brings a fresh perspective in his argument that there is nothing inherently controversial about any of these issues. Moreover, he argues there is no reason that we should understand conflict between these and similar issues to be anchored within inherently opposing approaches by religious and scientific authorities. . .This is a smart and thought-provoking book.--Contemporary Sociology
