Product Description

John Polkinghorne, both an accomplished scientist and theologian within the academy and the church is one of the world's leading authorities on issues of science and faith. In Testing Scripture: A Scientist Explores the Bible, 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 Scripture.

Polkinghorne tackles the questions modern Western thinkers tend bring to the Bible, including issues of Scripture and authority, contradiction and ambiguity, and the debate over human origins. He also addresses theological challenges presented by the Old Testament, the Gospels, and the writings of Paul.

Polkinghorne himself states about this book:
"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.
