Description

"A model of conceptual clarity."--Commonweal
"Although the book is intended for nonspecialists, Polkinghorne's own expertise shines through in the quiet confidence with which he cites examples to back his main theses. . . . Quantum Physics and Theology helps to counteract the stereotype that comes up all too often in religion and science controversies: Science has to do with indubitable truths while religion is nothing more than speculation, personal opinion, or uncritical acceptance of tradition."--Robert B. Griffiths, Physics Today
"When John Polkinghorne writes on the intersection of science and religion, one pays attention."--Anthony L. Blair, Perspectives on Science and Christian Faith
"It is a highly readable book, appropriate for use in undergraduate courses on religion and science. . . . The book is an important contribution to the dialogue between Christian theology and physics."--Yiftach J. H. Fehige, American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly
"Polkinghorne explores the underlying truth-seeking connection between science and religion and executes this task with a rare blend of precision and clarity."--Nathan J. Hallanger, The Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences, Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley
"Polkinghorne's life project is to show that science and religion are two rational structures between which there are significant homologies. It is most fascinating in Quantum Physics and Theology to observe him demonstrate this thesis."--Miroslav Volf, Yale Divinity School
