Through his understanding of the cosmos, Carl Sagan has forcefully, though unwittingly, offered mankind a dynamic new religion. Sagan’s religion, however, is not a traditional one. It does not involve worship of a Supreme Being, nor the performing of any particular ritual. Yet Sagan’s religion of science has penetrated deep into the modern cultural consciousness. In this compelling volume, Geisler confronts Sagan’s scientific religion with the truth of Christianity.
