The task given to the authors of the essays in this collection-3 scholars from 3 different continents-was to examine the phenomenon of intelligence. Human and animal intelligence is known to us. Extra-terrestrial intelligence and artificial intelligence are now serious topics for debate and discussion. The possibilities of extra-terrestrial intelligence and yet-to-be developed forms of artificial intelligence pose questions about how intelligent animals are and what the implications are for our concept of God and the salvific work of Christ. Contributors are: Anna Foerst (USA), John Puddefoot (UK) and Mark Worthing (Australia).
