Reviews

BOOKLIST
"Smithsonian National Museum of American History scholars and authors Manseau and Aghapour ask readers to consider that science and religion are intertwined rather than being two separate entities. [...] The authors' avoidance of being preachy adds to the book's approachability as it perfectly toes the line between educational and entertaining."

CHOICE
"This relatively brief study provides a general overview of the topic, so readers will appreciate the material culture visuals used throughout the text as examples of how science has shaped the faith of a nation and how faith has influenced the scientific understanding of some of the US's greatest thinkers and leaders."
