An Unexpected Kinship , etc. He wrote in the Introduction to this book, "many courses on science of religion have been inaugurated in colleges and universities By that I mean a single book that attempts the humble but useful task of surveying the whole intellectual scene in an even-handed manner There were scientific difficulties in the case presented by Galileo. One was the absence of stellar parallaxthe shift in the apparent position of the stars expected to result from their being viewed from different perspectives if the Earth were moving round an orbit in the course of the year.

Galileo placed great emphasis on the claimed confirmatory value of his explanation of the tides. We now know that he was completely in error about this matter The quantum world must be known as it is, within the limits imposed by the uncertainty principle and not with the clarity of a Newtonian epistemology.

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.

Polkinghorne explores the merging of theology and science by observing that science is necessarily involved with metaphysics. It is a good start at a rigorous effort, but it is only a start.

The Program for the Theology of Science

Perhaps Polkinghorne cannot make a systematic combination of the two because he remains first a scientist in his thinking and a Christian in his faith. It is still a good presentation of the possible thorough union of Science and Theology. Just what I expected, good. See all 9 reviews. Most recent customer reviews.
