Creation and the world of science by A. R Peacocke( Book )

27 editions published between 1979 and 2009 in English and held by 1,008 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A.R. Peacocke's "Creation and the World of Science", an expanded version of his 1978 Bampton Lectures, was widely recognized as a key work on the relation of the sciences to religion, in general, and Christian theology in particular. It has long been seen as a formative contribution to the wide-ranging investigations, which now, internationally, constitute this intensely active field. This new reprinting contains the original and influential text and also contains a new supplement containing key references to the literature of recent years as well as indicating the author's current position on central themes. It constitutes an essential reference and starting point for the contemporary discussion of key issues in the dialogue between the sciences and theology

"This collection of fifteen research papers explores the implications of chaos and complexity in physical, chemical, and biological systems for philosophical and theological issues regarding God's action in the world. It resulted from the second of five international research conferences being co-sponsored by the Vatican Observatory, Rome, and the Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences, Berkeley. The overarching goal is to contribute to constructive theology as it engages current research in the natural sciences and to investigate the philosophical and theological elements in ongoing theoretical research in the natural sciences."--Jacket

God and science : a quest for Christian credibility by A. R Peacocke( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This brief study, based on lectures given to the South African Science and Religion Forum in 1995 and earlier ones given at the University of St Andrews, is written for those who are aware of living in a scientific age and would like to discover a credible form of Christian belief which they can make their own." "The book begins by examining how science as the study of the realities of nature can be related today to religion and theology, the experience and study of God. This leads to a consideration of revelation and religious experience as God's communication to humanity. The awareness that human beings are in process of becoming raises the question whether any divine meaning has been communicated to humanity, and here the Christian claims are fully discussed. A postscript points to the mystery of the unity-in-diversity and diversity-in-unity of the ultimate, inexpressible nature of God and recognizes the virtue of wordlessness in the presence of the ineffable Divine Being and Becoming."--BOOK JACKET
