This book presents a celebration, survey and critique of the theological work of arguably the most important and most widely-read contributor to the modern dialogue between science and theology: John Polkinghorne. Including a major survey by Polkinghorne himself of his life's work in theology, this book draws together contributors from among the most important voices in the science-theology dialogue today to focus on key aspects of Polkinghorne's work, with Polkinghorne providing responses. Anybody exploring contemporary aspects of the science-religion debate will find this book invaluable.
Fraser Watts is Starbridge Reader in Science and Religion, University of Cambridge, author and editor of numerous books on the science-religion dialogue; Christopher C.Knight is Executive Secretary of the International Society for Science and Religion, author of two books on the science-religion dialogue.
'The reader is immediately immersed in a rich dialogue (some of it academically philosophical), as they seek to express and make sense of the faith they share, and to respond, with generous respect, to the lifetime work of Polkinghorne.' Church Times '... a first class collection of essays... presents [Polkinghorne] as a creative theologian whose faith gives him the confidence to grapple with the issues science raises in very fruitful way.' The Church of England Newspaper 'In God and the Scientist, Watts and Knight have done a service to Polkinghorne but in so doing they’ve done a service to us all. They’ve not only introduced us to a scholar and person they highly esteem and deeply admire, they’ve introduced us to the subject he loves. A most fitting honor and tribute indeed.' Reviews in Science and Religion '... an engaging and stimulating book... [the writing] is lucid and of a high standard.' Journal of Theological Studies ’... draw[s] out recurrent themes in Polkinghorne’s work... It is a stimulating feature of this book that it shines light onto these important topics from several different perspectives. An important and valuable book...’ Modern Believing
