Science and Religion in Quest of Truth

By John Polkinghorne
Available in 24 hours
[This book] covers what I believe to be the critical issues in the contemporary vigorous debate between science and theology, concentrating on what I judge to be the essential insights that are relevant to the issues raised. References are given to my earlier writings where chapters can be found that afford a more detailed engagement with particular issues, but I believe that on its own the present book lays out the core concepts that are fundamental in what is surely one of the most significant interdisciplinary interactions of our time, pursued in a wide quest for truthful understanding. The book concentrates on my own work, not at all because I think that I have said all that need be said, but simply because, after more than thirty years of reflection, this is what I have to offer.' From the Introduction.
