Thanks, Jonathan. This looks worth the read just for the following "side
trips" :

"Many attribute secularization to the rise of science, but "no
contemporary sociologist of religion argues that Christianity has been
fatally undermined by science". The religious beliefs of scientists are,
however, quite interesting, and Bruce takes some side trips to explore
variation within disciplines, with mathematicians far more religious
than anthropologists, and similarities in "cognitive style" and
epistemological approach between some kinds of science and religion."
