Item Description...
Religion and science today are often seen as enemies battling for human hearts and minds. In this new book Alan Padgett takes a postmodern turn, arguing that they can and should work together collegially, developing a worldview that is at once spiritually meaningful and scientifically sound. Pursuing a perspective that he calls the mutuality model, Padgett highlights the contributions that both religion and science make to a full understanding of the world and our place in it. He argues convincingly that the natural sciences and theology, even though they have their own domain as disciplines, can rationally influence each other without giving up their distinctive methods. The book explores the nature of informal reason and worldviews, the character of theology as a spiritual and academic discipline, and the question of what counts as natural science. Along the way, Padgett discusses such topics as thermodynamics, time, resurrection, and the historical Jesus to illustrate his powerful mutuality model.

Thermodynamics, time, resurrection, and the historical Jesus  Feb 3, 2004
Written by Alan G. Padgett (Professor of Systematic Theology, Luther Seminary, St. Paul, Minnesota) who draws upon his lifelong fascination with and enthusiasm for science, Science And The Study Of God: A Mutuality Model For Theology And Science presents a thoughtful and thought-provoking perspective called the "mutuality model", which rejects the idea that religion and science should be at odds for understanding the world and the place of humankind in it. Exploring diverse topics such as thermodynamics, time, resurrection, and the historical Jesus through lenses of both science and faith, Science And The Study Of God is a deeply insightful and highly recommended meditation on the profound questions of existence from a Christian perspective.
