I finally finished reading Alvin Plantinga's new book, Where the Conflict Really Lies; Science, Religion, and Naturalism. I must give it very high marks and recommend it almost unhesitatingly. Plantinga's main goal is to show that there is superficial conflict, but deep concord between science and theism; and superficial concord, but deep conflict between science and naturalism. I think, for the most part, he succeeds in accomplishing this goal. I especially recommend reading chapter 9: "Deep Concord: Christian Theism and the Deep Roots of Science," where Plantinga very systematically lays out his case.
I do have a few misgivings. As I've mentioned before (here and here), it's not clear to me that Plantinga is correct in thinking that there is no conflict between Darwinism and guided evolution. Further, he does not discuss what has become a hot topic in Christian thinking: how to resolve the apparent conflict between geneticists, most of whom maintain that the human population never had fewer than several thousand people, and the traditional understanding of the Fall, which says that our current sinful nature resulted from the rebellion of Adam and Eve. I, for one, am curious how Plantinga would suggest going about resolving this apparent conflict.
There are other parts of his book that I want to think over before I give my wholehearted endorsement to them. It's not clear to me that Plantinga gave a satisfactory reply to the multiverse "answer" to the fine-tuned universe argument. And I'm not sure that I agree with his suggestion that design arguments should best be viewed as "design discourses", instead. If I have time, I hope to explore these issues in the near future.
But meanwhile, if you're looking for a good book that discusses the relationship of science and religion, I can't think of a better book to recommend.
P.S. I suppose I'll also consider criticisms leveled at Plantinga's book by others.
