7 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fifty Years in Science and Religion brings together nineteen leading scholars in the field to offer an appreciative yet critical assessment of the impact of Barbour's work on science and religion and to point ahead towards future critical areas, goals and tasks that await new research and visionary exploration. This book includes a unique autobiography by Barbour in which for the first time he shares and reflects on his life and work, as well as a detailed bibliography of Barbour's works. Together, the authors demonstrate how Barbour's writings and the hundreds of scholars who have now become part of the field have changed the course of intellectual history in the West by making possible and necessary a truly constructive engagement between science and religion in the context of inter-religious dialogue and the global human and environmental challenges of our time."--Jacket
Cosmology : from alpha to omega : the creative mutual interaction of theology and science by Robert J Russell( Book )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In these chapters, Robert J. Russell takes theology and science beyond mere dialogue into a genuinely new relationship: "creative mutual interaction." The theological topics range from God, creation, suffering in nature, the theological significance of life in the universe to an eschatology involving the transformation of the universe into the new creation based on the bodily Resurrection of Jesus. Scientific topics include the Big Bang, inflation and quantum cosmologies, relativity, quantum mechanics, molecular and evolutionary biology, exobiology, and the modern mathematics of infinity. Although, as Barbour notes, Russell "avoids giving simple answers to complex questions," readers will be amply rewarded with for their journey into this new discipline."--Jacket
