How did the universe begin? Can God's existence be proven? Do humans matter more than animals? For many years people have sent the scientist-turned-priest John Polkinghorne these and other questions about science and belief. In question-and-answer format, Polkinghorne and his collaborator Nicholas Beale offer their highly informed opinions about some of the most frequently asked of these questions. Readers can follow their own paths through the book, selecting questions that interest them and looking at the additional material if they choose. This unique book will help Christians clarify their beliefs regarding difficult issues and better face challenges--from within and from others--to their faith.
Wonderfully accessible, informative and authoritative An ideal starting point for those new to the field, a great stimulus to discussion for those who are already initiated." - Alister E McGrath, Professor of Theology, Kings College, London
People looking for an intelligent discussion of some of the difficult questions that come up when one is serious about faith and serious about science should look at Questions of Truth. Here, Polkinghorne and Beale have provided their responses to questions raised by just such people. For sampling a wide variety of topics, or digging down into a few, this little book is a refreshing contrast to the polemic and misinformation that have characterized much of the writing in this area. - William D. Phillips, Nobel Prizewinner in Physics
"Here in the 21st century, many thoughtful seekers are rejecting shrill and extreme positions of atheistic scientism or religious fundamentalism and are instead searching for deeper answers to questions about God and the natural world. Standing on the rational bedrock of faith as the "evidence of things not seen," Polkinghorne and Beale provide richly nuanced responses to the questions that many seekers are asking. This is simply a fantastic resource." - Francis Collins, author of The Language of God and former Director of the Human Genome Project
An important contribution to the dialogue between science and religion. - Martin A Nowak, Professor of Biology and of Mathematics, Harvard University
