From the Back Cover:

In a crystal clear discussion of science and religion and their logical friendship in the search for truth and understanding, Polkinghorne draws on discoveries made in atomic physics to make credible the claims of Christianity, and helps refine Christian perceptions through the knowledge that the new science brings. He discusses belief in God, chaos, evolution, miracles, and prayer, and gives an answer to the question: Can a scientist believe?

About the Author:

John Polkinghorne, a former Cambridge Professor of Mathematical Physics and now President of Queen's College, Cambridge, is an Anglican priest.
