For Perumalil, science and the concomitant technologies that have emerged since the seventeenth century, have not only pervaded all aspects of, and brought significant benefits to, human life, but have also displaced religion from its pivotal intellectual position and treated it disdainfully. As a theologian and philosopher, Perumalil wants the scientific community to engage constructively with the philosophy and practice of religion. This is Perumalil's larger project, and the title of his book reflects this, rather than the content per se.
