Someone who read my annotated bibliography said, "Just curious as to why
you overlooked Giberson's WORLDS APART: THE UNHOLY WAR BETWEEN SCIENCE
AND RELIGION. Beacon Hill Press, Kansas City, Mo."
That makes me think that perhaps Giberson is someone I should know
about. Can someone who knows him, tell me something about Giberson and
what they think of his contribution to the literature on science and

Karl Giberson teaches physics at Eastern Nazarene College near Boston. He is
also editor of the "newspaper-type" publication put out by the Templeton
organization (I can't remember the title...News & Views maybe). He and his
colleague Donald Yerxa frequently team-up on science-faith issues and are
fairly often in Books & Culture. If I remember correctly, within the past
year he did a 3-part series on Isaac Newton for B&C.
He also has several books out, including a new one with Yerxa. A search of
google and/or amazon.com should give you more info. I have not read his
books but have had them highly recommended; they apparently aim for an
educated layman/college student level.
By the way, his last name is pronounced with a long i -- the Gi rhymes with
by. Hope this helps; if my colleague Steve Smith is still lurking on this
list, he can tell you a lot more.
