In Senses of Mystery, Bernard Verkamp first distinguishes the "purely natural" sense of mystery from the specifically religious sense of mystery.  He then leads the reader to the conclusion that it is precisely in the shared experience of mystery that science and religion have their best chance at reconciliation.
