Science and Christian Belief: Theological Reflections of a Bottom-up Thinker

Front Cover
Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, Jan 1, 1994 - Christianity - 211 pages
The first attempt to apply scientific habits of thought to the core of Christian belief, to examine in turn the central tenets of the creeds in light of a thoroughly modern world-view. The result is a fascinating and intellectually compelling new presentation of orthodox Christianity - but then, as Polkinghorne writes in his Introduction, 'a scientist would expect a fundamental theory to be tough, surprising, and exciting'.
