Publisher's Description

Scientist and theologian John Polkinghorne is one of the world's leading authorities on issues of science and faith. In this compelling work, he provides a fresh, honest look at key themes of the Bible from an analytical and rational perspective, offering a series of insights that have helped him in his own engagement with the Bible. Polkinghorne tackles the questions a modern Western thinker might bring to the Bible, including issues of Scripture and authority, contradiction and ambiguity, and the creation and fall. He also addresses theological challenges of the Old Testament, the Gospels, and the writings of Paul. "I have written this little book in the hope that it will be helpful to those who are seeking a careful and thoughtful engagement with the Bible in their quest for a truthful understanding of the ways of God and the nature of spiritual reality," writes Polkinghorne. His nuanced approach will be appreciated by any reader with an open and inquiring mind who is interested in the intersection between science and Scripture.

Author Bio

John Polkinghorne, KBE, FRS, is internationally known as both a physicist and a priest. He served as president of Queens' College, University of Cambridge, prior to his retirement. He is founding president of the International Society for Science and Religion, a member of England's Royal Society, and the bestselling author of more than thirty books. He was awarded the Templeton Prize in 2002.

Endorsements

John Polkinghorne is one of the most important Christian thinkers alive, respected for his contributions to science, theology, and their interface. In Testing Scripture he shows how a thoughtful believer can respect the insights and authority of Scripture without getting mired in the quicksand of biblical literalism. I highly recommend this accessible and informed survey.
-Karl Giberson,
Author (with Dean Nelson) of Quantum Leap: How John Polkinghorne Found God in Science and Religion

In the clear and candid prose his readers appreciate, John Polkinghorne takes bottom-up thinking from his scientific background and applies it as a priest to the Bible. The result is a level-headed and winsome argument for the high value of Scripture. Along the way, Polkinghorne addresses pressing issues facing Christian interpreters of the Bible today.
-Thomas Jay Oord, professor of theology and philosophy, Northwest Nazarene University; editor of The Polkinghorne Reader

    BEWARE! Although it appears from reading the book that Dr. Polkinghorn is a true believer, he also appears to value his "higher-critical" tradition more than he trusts the reliability of scripture, and shows disdain for those who hold to Biblical Inerrancy. (Bibliolatry is not a fair description of the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy). Chapter 7 is, on the other hand, a nice summary of reasons for belief. However, for a more thorough exploration of the scriptures, I might suggest reading something by Norm Geisler or Kenneth Kithchen.
