In these two volumes, controversial Methodist theologian and philosopher Thomas Oord heads up a group of pioneering scholars who demonstrate the ways science and theology complement each other. Contributors like Jürgen Moltmann, Clark Pinnock, and others analyze natural and social scientific themes as they are informed by open theology, and address key themes in theology and science. These experts explore John Wesley’s view of the natural sciences and discuss evolution, creation ex nihilo, biblical cosmology, quantum theory, ecology, and intelligent design.
