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.

Publisher's Description

In this brief and highly accessible book for general readers, distinguished physicist-turned-theologian John Polkinghorne presents a reasoned account of the Christian view of the world as seen by the one of the world's leading interpreters of the interface between science and religion. Drawing from his experiences as a scientist and a theologian, Polkinghorne argues that Christianity presents a credible and compelling worldview that can be taken seriously even while fully understanding the importance of science.
