Russell Stannard, author of the hugely successful 'Uncle Albert' series, has done more than anyone else to popularize science and make it something that is fun and readable. Here, he takes us on a guided tour of the Universe. But this is no ordinary introduction to astronomy and cosmology. The explanations are inspired by a wonderfully varied collection of poems from poets such as Spike Milligan, Ted Hughes, Emily Dickinson, Roger McGough, Matthew Sweeney and Benjamin Zephaniah, as well as from children themselves. Russell Stannard weaves a brilliant narrative between the poems so that we learn about such phenomena as shooting stars, black holes, the Solar System, and space travel, while the poets never let us lose sight of the mystery and awe that captured our curiosity in the first place. The anthology is a wonderful bridge between the more accessible world of the imagination and the often terrifyingly austere world of science, aimed at readers between the ages of 8 and 12.

This work provides a comprehensive introduction to the issues raised by the interaction of science and religion. It describes the history of their relationship, which stretches far beyond the episodes of Galileo and Darwin, suggesting that contrary to popular myth Christianity provided a helpful context for the rise of modern science. The book also describes the issues raised by the philosophy of science, and deals in some detail with the new discipline of the sociology of science. It includes a brief overview of key areas of contemporary science, discussions of the use of science by theologians and many suggestions as to how theology should respond to the scientific culture in which we live.
