    1. Steve on said:

      Very interesting, enjoyable, intelligent, well-written book. Combined with the author's obvious professional mastery of history his witty, passionate, and rhetorically sophisticated (in the positive sense) survey of the alleged conflict between science and religion is potent and entirely believable. Raises serious questions about the alleged war between science and Christianity - a myth held by both atheists and fundamentalist Christians. The best parts of the book are those in which the author [...]

      As a Christian and a lover of science I could never understand why there had to be conflict. Why can't someone believe in both? In Slaying the Dragons, Chapman does a superb job at debunking some popular historical and modern myths involving the science versus faith conflict and was a huge encouragement to me personally. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in this subject.

      This is an excellent book that systematically debunks the myths that have been propagated by the “New Atheists” in their attempt to force and unnecessary conflict between science and faith. In this particular book faith means Christian faith, for that is the faith that is relevant to the author (and this reader) and is also the faith that is most commonly attacked. The author teaches the history of science at Oxford, and is therefore well qualified to write the book. The structure of the boo [...]

      Disappointing , lightweight fluff from a heavily biased Christian. Apologetic in tone whenever religious ideas pop up. Pity because there is depth and insight quite often. Lots of good trivia. Shows a wide reading but wears huge blinkers. An annoying book mostly. I can't help but wonder how good it would gave been without the god gasses glued so firmly to his eyeballs. As Behe is to science , Chapman is to history.

      Well written, well argued and a really good overview of the problems with many of the new atheist claims about the history of science.

      Brilliant! Should be read alongside Dr Francis Collins, The Language of God.
