Item Description...
In the burgeoning interaction between science and religion Polkinghorne is a leading light. A classy overview of all pertinent issues (e.g., creation, the nature of knowledge, human identity, and divine agency), this book features well-crafted summaries of the latest scientific thinking.

Publishers Description
In this short masterpiece, eminent scientist and theologian John Polkinghorne offers an accessible, yet authoritative, introduction to the stimulating field of science and theology. After surveying their volatile historical relationship, he leads the reader through the whole array of questions at the nexus of the scientific and religious quests. A lucid and lively writer, Polkinghorne provides a marvelously clear overview of the major elements of current science (including quantum theory, chaos theory, time, and cosmology). He then offers a concise outline of the character of religion and shows the joint potential of science of religion to illumine some of the thorniest issues in theology today: creation, the nature of knowledge, human and divine identity and agency. Polkinghorne aptly demonstrates that a sturdy faith has nothing to fear and much to gain from an intellectually honest appraisal of the new horizons of contemporary science.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Accessible  Jan 4, 2000
I thoroughly enjoyed this great book by John Polkinghorne. Polkinghorne's writing style is brilliant. The "Introduction" in the title and the book's small size deceived me at first; this book is no "quick read." Thankfully, the book is conveniently broken into small bite-sized sections, allowing one to absorbed and reflect on Polkinghorne's insightful work. This is Polkinghorne's most accessible work, and I highly recommend it.
Masterly summary of Science & Theology from a real expert.  Apr 21, 1999
John Polkinghorne is probably the greatest writer on science and religion to date - the only truly world-class scientist who has become a theologian. This book is his 'textbook' surveying the field, discussing other authors and providing a rounded view. Everyone seriously interested in ultimate questions should read this book.
