9780281059164: Theology in the Context of Science

"Theology in the Context of Science" is a new work by John Polkinghorne. It explores the ever popular debate of science in religion. Here, Polkinghorne examines how science, rather than debunking theological thoughts and ideals, can support and reinforce the Christian values we hold dear. Polkinghorne continues to insist that science and religion can be complementary - one does not disprove the other, rather they are two ways to look at the really big questions.
