Squaring the circle?

I found this an extremely frustrating book.

It takes the form of a dialogue between Michael Pfundner of the Bible Society and Ernest Lucas of Bristol Baptist College, focusing upon three broad areas in which science interacts with the Christian faith: our understanding of the physical universe, the origin and development of life, and the historical reliability of the gospels. The big bang, neo-Darwinian evolution, and a vast age for the earth are all taken for granted, and science is defined as a way of looking at the world ‘without invoking the existence or action of God’ (p.3). The authors see their task as demonstrating that Christianity is compatible with these ideas.
