John Polkinghorne is a world authority in the field of science and religion. He has written numerous books in this area, and his thinking is hugely influential. This book brings together his thoughts on several core issues in the debate: God, science and technology, and Christianity. This book will appeal to readers who are new to Polkinghorne's thought and who are just beginning to investigate the interplay between science and religion. It will also appeal to those who have read his smaller books, but would like one handy resource which brings his thought together, and to students studying science and religion.
