Enriching Our Vision of Reality: Theology and the Natural Sciences in Dialogue [9780281075447]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

In this exceptional volume, Alister McGrath writes for scientists with an interest in theology, and Christians and theologians who are aware of the importance of the natural sciences. A scene-setting chapter explores the importance of the human quest for intelligibility. The focus then moves to three leading figures who have stimulated discussion about the relation of science and theology in recent years: Charles Colson, an Oxford professor of theoretical chemistry who was also a prominent Methodist lay preacher; Ian Ramsey, sometime Bishop of Durham; and John Polkinghorne, theoretical physicist, theologian and Anglican priest. The latter part of the book features six parallel conversations between science and theology, which lay the groundwork for the kind of enriched vision of reality the author hopes to encourage. Here, we are inspired to enjoy individual aspects of nature while seeking to interpret these in the light of deeper revelations about our gloriously strange universe.


AUTHOR: ALISTER MCGRATH is the Andreos Idreos Professor of Science and Religion at the University of Oxford, President of the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics (OCCA), and (from 2015-18) Gresham Professor of Divinity. His previous posts include Professor of Theology and Education at King's College, London, and Professor of Historical Theology at Oxford University. McGrath gained first class honours from Oxford University in Chemistry (1975) and first class honours in Theology (1978). He holds an Oxford DPhil (1978) for his research in molecular biology, a DD from Oxford University's Faculty of Theology for his work in historical and systematic theology (2001), and a DLitt from Oxford University's Division of Humanities for his research in science and religion (2013). He was elected FRSA in 2005, in recognition of his work as a public intellectual. A former atheist, he has established a reputation as one of the leading apologists for Christianity, as well as one of the world's most respected Christian theologians. His many books include a new highly acclaimed biography of C. S. Lewis, a series of market-leading textbooks in Christian theology, and some best-selling books engaging with the 'New Atheism'.
