Product Description

Theology for a Scientific Age impacts orthodox Christian theology in light of recent advances in the world of secular science such as information theory and cognitive science while showing the limitations of scientific imperialism. Peacocke accepts evolution as God's way of creating life and continuing His interaction with creation (which he terms divine "becoming", as contrasted with His nature or "being"), and so, since Adam's Fall is seen as simply metaphorical, redemption and atonement based on the sacrifice of Jesus Christ would be unnecessary in Peacocke's model. His approach requires that the integrity of secular scientific knowledge be preserved in theology, and forwards the theory that the fulfillment of human life is not glorifying God and enjoying Him forever, but rather working together with God in a "sacramental universe".
