Product Description

In 2009, the John Templeton foundation summoned leading theologians and scientists to Istanbul, Turkey, near ancient home of the Nicene Creed to discuss the Creeds phrase "Light from Light" in the context of modern scientific advancement and contemporary theological discourse. This book is the documentation of that conference.

Featuring 14 contributors, Light from Light: Scientists and Theologians in Dialogue renowned scientists and theologians discuss the concept of light as understood by modern physics and employed by biblical and patristic writers. Light from Light deepens readers' understanding of light as posited by recent cosmological and physical theories, drawing connections with "light" as a theological metaphor. Striking glimpses into new scientific developments offer additional insight and interest.

Endorsements

In this fascinating volume both scientists and theologians discuss the concept of light in their respective fields and find points of contact through viewing light as both metaphor, analogy, and symbol. I am delighted to recommend Light from Light to scholars as well as those interested in a readable account of the interactions between theology and science.
