Author Bio

Robert John Russell is Professor of Theology and Science in Residence at Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley, and founding director of the Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences there. A leader in the religion and science field for a generation, he has also been series editor for the six influential volumes in the joint Vatican Observatory and Notre Dame University Press series on scientific and theological perspectives on divine action.

Publisher Description

Rare is the theologian or philosopher so versed in contemporary science as to offer original insights with credibility for both fields. Robert John Russell, founder and director of the Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences, is such a thinker. This volume gathers some of his most important writing, centered in an intense search for a credible theology of divine action, and its implications for thinking of time, creation, and eschatology.

In ten provocative chapters Russell explores such topics as: The Contingency of Creation and Big Bang Cosmology; Does 'The God Who Acts' Really Act?; New Approaches to Divine Action In Light of Contemporary Science; Entropy and Evil: The Role of Thermodynamics in the Ambiguity of Good and Evil in Nature; The Transfiguration of the Cosmos: A Fresh Exploration of the Symbol of a Cosmic Christ; and more.
