Product Description

An intriguing exploration of how science and religion address the same reality. Drawing from his experiences as a physicist and theologian, Polkinghorne summarizes three worldviews---scientific, personal, and religious---and draws convincing parallels between observational science and the study of evidence from the New Testament. A thoughtful, thorough analysis. Includes glossary. 130 pages, softcover from Westminster John Knox.
