Press Release, 20th November 2007

The International Society for Science and Religion announced the launch of The International Society for Science and Religion (ISSR) Library Project on November 1, 2007.

The ISSR, the world’s leading learned society in the field of science and religion, will create a foundational library of central texts in the field. This library will consist of approximately 250 books spanning all important areas and disciplines as well as key international and intercultural voices.

The project will deploy the collective experience of the Society’s membership in selecting appropriate texts for inclusion. Through the work of the Executive Editor, the Editorial Board and a team of Contributing Editors, all drawn from the Society’s membership, and with ongoing nomination and input from the membership at large, the Society will spend approximately eighteen months in a detailed review and selection process.

Request for Proposals

The International Society for Science and Religion (ISSR), the world’s leading learned society in the field of science and religion, announced the launch of The International Society for Science and Religion Library Project on November 1, 2007.

The International Society for Science and Religion now requests proposals from institutions of higher learning to receive complete Libraries of major works in the field of science and the human spirit. These books will collectively provide for a comprehensive foundation for study, teaching and research in science and religion and related fields. Winnowed from thousands of books currently in print in this area, these titles are representative of the most important authors and treat the vast range of interdisciplinary subject matter at the highest level of quality and scholarship. Selected through rigorous peer review, these titles reflect no ideological or religious bias and are drawn from many faith traditions as well as authors with vigorously naturalistic perspectives.

The ISSR will select up to 150 institutions on a competitive basis to receive libraries consisting of approximately 200 matching hardbound volumes accompanied by a comprehensive Companion edition written by Society members that summarizes and critiques each volume.
