"The two parts of the title are much needed in today's discourse on faith and reason - an uncompromising analysis of what does and does not exist in the universe, and a respectful appreciation of people's diverse beliefs and of the wisdom that may be found in our civilization's traditions and literatures. Thomas Sheridan's readable book satisfies these needs gracefully and engagingly." —
