Overview

Ian Barbour, Arthur Peacocke, and John Polkinghorne are major contributors to the current interaction between science and religion. Though they began as scientists, all three have produced important work by crossing into the field of theology. But as their thinking has developed, differences between them have emerged. Distinctive approaches to questions such as the significance of Jesus, the Bible, and the relationship between modern scientific knowledge and traditional theology have revealed variety in their approaches to the subject. In Scientists as Theologians, Polkinghorne gives his survey of the debate. He outlines where these thinkers disagree, why they differ, and draws conclusions about possible future directions. His account is an accessible introduction to the field of science and religion and an assessment of what is at stake.

Rev Dr. John Polkinghorne is a distinguished physicist who has spent recent decades studying and writing about the relationship between science and faith. His physics career began at Cambridge where he studied under the legendary quantum pioneer P.A.M. Dirac and others, and he worked for 25 years in the field of theoretical elementary particle physics as a professor at Cambridge. He resigned his professorship in 1979 and became an Anglican priest, and since then has become a leading spokesman for the faith among serious scientists. He became a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1974, and was appointed KBE (Knight Commander of the order of the British Empire) in 1997.
