Description

John Polkinghorne brings unique qualifications to his exploration of the possibilities of believing in God in an age of science: he is internationally known as a theoretical physicist and as a theologian. In this thought-provoking book, Polkinghorne focuses on the collegiality between science and theology, contending that the inquiries of these "intellectual cousins" are parallel. "Polkinghorne [presents] a polished and logically coherent argument."-Freeman J. Dyson, New York Review of Books "Short, accessible, and authoritative."-Carlin Romano, Philadelphia Inquirer "This book should be widely read."-Colin Tudge, New Statesman and Society "If you read one book on science and religion, this should be it."-Kirkus Reviews
