From the dustwrapper, "The question whether religion and science are opposed to each other or not has been often hotly discussed. Many leading scientists have though that they are. Dr Wilson sets out to prove this view to be wrong. Part I deals with some of the marvellous discoveries of science. Part II deals with the revelation of Our Lord as given in the Gospels. Part III co-ordinates the two earlier parts and shows how the witness of science corresponds in every way with the witness of Christ". The author was a British surgeon and Liberal politician and also wrote crime novels under the name Anthony Wynne.
The book is in good readable condition, the pages slight tanned but the binding secure. The dustwrapper is rather sun-faded and a little tatty to the edges but is now within a protective sleeve.
