The role of theology in the history and philosophy of science by Joshua M Moritz( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and German and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After a bibliographic introduction highlighting various research trends in science and religion, Joshua Moritz explores how the current academic and conceptual landscape of theology and science has been shaped by the history of science, even as theology has informed the philosophical foundations of science. The first part assesses the historical interactions of science and the Christian faith (looking at the cases of human dissection in the Middle Ages and the Galileo affair) in order to challenge the common notion that science and religion have always been at war. Part two investigates the nature of the interaction between science and Christian theology by exploring the role that metaphysical presuppositions and theological concepts have played - and continue to play - within the scientific process."--
Astrotheology : science and theology meet extraterrestrial life by Ted Peters( )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Astrotheology: Science and Theology Meet Extraterrestrial Life looks at both ends of the telescope: the unfathomable reaches of cosmic space and the excited stirrings within the human psyche. It takes a scientist to explain what we are looking at. It takes a theologian to understand who is doing the looking. This book's scientific authors update readers on astrobiology's search for extraterrestrial life. Theologians add to the science a theological analysis of the place of space in understanding God's creative work, the prospects of sharing God's creation with extraterrestrial neighbors, and the question of whether one or many incarnations are required for cosmic redemption. Finally, these scholars lay the foundations for an ethic of space exploration. This book introduces a comprehensive astrotheology with an accompanying astroethic. ""In this fascinating book, the authors not only update readers on contemporary cosmology and astrobiology's search for extraterrestrial life, but also develop the kind of public, interdisciplinary theology where both theology and the sciences are reshaped to contribute to a comprehensive understanding of what will be at stake for these widely divergent disciplines once extraterrestrial life is discovered."" --J. Wentzel van Huyssteen, Princeton Theological Seminary ""This book is a treat for those who tire of treatments of astrobiology that focus only on the science and the technology of the subject. The very likely existence of intelligence and sentience elsewhere in the universe begs questions that center on philosophy and religion. This scholarly and entertaining treatment of these issues is very welcome."" --Chris Impey, University of Arizona ""Here is a much needed book by leading thinkers in the field--deeply grounded in Christian theology and sensitive to the scientific complexities."" --David Wilkerson, St. John's College Theologians and scientists at the Francisco J. Ayala Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences (CTNS) at the Graduate Theological Union (GTU) in Berkeley, California, have edited this comprehensive volume. Editor-in-chief Ted Peters teaches systematic theology and ethics at the GTU. Partner editors include Robert John Russell, Ian G. Barbour Professor of Theology and Science at the GTU; Joshua Moritz, managing editor of the journal Theology and Science on behalf of CTNS; and Martinez Hewlett, Professor Emeritus of Molecular and Cellular Biology at the University of Arizona and adjunct professor at the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology at the GTU."--
Science and religion : beyond warfare and toward understanding by Joshua M Moritz( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What happens when religious faith meets scientific facts? Many believe that conflict defines the relationship between science and religion, especially the Christian religion. But the war between faith and science is a myth--a popular myth--that has endured for too long. By investigating the root of this myth and reexamining its classic stories, this book offers a more accurate picture of the relationship between science and religion
