       Where the Conflict Really Lies is a long-awaited major statement by a pre-eminent analytic Christian philosopher, Alvin Plantinga, on one of our biggest debates of our time--the compatibility of science and religion. The last twenty years has seen a cottage industry of books on this divide, but with little consensus emerging. Plantinga, as a top philosopher but also a proponent of the rationality of religious belief, has a unique contribution to make. His theme in this short book is that the conflict between science and theistic religion is actually superficial, and that at a deeper level they are in concord. Conversely, the concord existing between science and religion, argues Plantinga points to discontinuity between 'Naturalism' (defined as a religion in its own right) and Science.

Plantinga examines where this conflict is supposed to exist--evolution, evolutionary psychology, analysis of scripture, scientific study of religion-- as well as claims by Dan Dennett, Richard Dawkins, and Philip Kitcher that evolution and theistic belief cannot co-exist. Plantinga makes a case that their arguments are not only inconclusive but that the supposed conflicts themselves are superficial, due to the methodological naturalism used by science. On the other hand, science can actually offer support to theistic doctrines, and Plantinga uses the notion of biological and cosmological 'fine-tuning' in support of this idea. Plantinga argues that we might think about arguments in science and religion in a new way--as different forms of discourse that try to persuade people to look at questions from a perspective such that they can see that something is true. In this way, there is a deep and massive consonance between theism and the scientific enterprise.
