    I bet Ted Davies will beat me to this. Apparently he has a copy of White under his pillow!

    Try these

    Lindberg and Numbers God and Nature Univ of Calif Press 1985

      Subject: Draper and White

      Back in the late 1800s, as has been mentioned in some recent discussion here, there were a couple of books by Draper and White that advanced the "warfare" model between science and Christianity. Those on this list who seem to know what they are talking about say that both books are distorted and unreliable, and I see allusions to that judgment in other books such as Barbour's tome.

      My question is whether there is some book, preferably by a reputable academic scholar, that the history experts on this list could recommend for pointing out at length the shortcomings of these 2 books?
