Item Description...

John C. Polkinghorne, internationally renowned priest-scientist, addresses fundamental questions about how scientific and theological worldviews relate to each other in this, the second volume (originally published in 1988) of his trilogy, which also included "Science and Providence" and "One World."

Dr. Polkinghorne illustrates how a scientifically minded person approaches the task of theological inquiry, postulating that there exists a close analogy between theory and experiment in science and belief and understanding in theology. He offers a fresh perspective on such questions as: Are we witnessing today a revival a natural theology--the search for God through the exercise of reason and the study of nature? How do the insights of modern physics into the interlacing of order and disorder relate to the Christian doctrine of Creation? What is the relationship between mind and matter?

Polkinghorne states that the "remarkable insights that science affords us into the intelligible workings of the world cry out for an explanation more profound than that which it itself can provide. Religion, if it is to take seriously its claim that the world is the creation of God, must be humble enough to learn from science what that world is actually like.The dialogue between them can only be mutually enriching."

Science and Creation - The Search for Truth  Dec 26, 2007
Polkinghorne talks about the theological and scientific paradigms by asking some very fundamental questions about how they relate to one another. Some of the questions he poses include what is the relationship between matter and mind, a subject I find extremely fascinating. How are the realms of "becoming" as we experience it and the world of "being" as he believes the way the world of physics describes it relate to God's involvement and the physical universe. How do the supposed insights of what he believes modern physics and the intertwining of order and disorder relate to the Christian doctrine of creation? These are some of the questions he asks and attempts to answer in this book. Notes at the end of the book, a bibliography and a subject index are most helpful.
