Publisher's Description

How can we think about God's action in a quantum world of indeterminacy? in a world that began with a Big Bang? in a world in which life evolved and is continually evolving? in a world governed by entropy and heading toward its eventual heat death? These are some of the most perplexing questions that have arisen from the rapid scientific and technological advances of the twentieth century.Science and Theology: The New Consonance grapples with these seeming conundrums by asking both scientists and religious thinkers to reflect upon possible solutions. In this exciting, new edited volume, physicists think about the connection between physics and faith and biologists discuss evolution, ethics, and the future. Complementing these viewpoints, theologians address these same issues from a religious standpoint.Chapter authors include Nobel Prize–winning physicist and inventor of the laser, Charles Townes, along with Pope John Paul II. The resulting interplay between science and theology presses toward consonance, encouraging comparisons, crossovers, and complementarity.
