About this book

Internationally known as a theoretical physicist and as a theologian, the author focuses on the collegiality between science and theology, contending that the inquiries of these "intellectual cousins" are parallel.

This book should be widely read. Colin Tudge, New Statesman and Society "Polkinghorne presents a polished and logically coherent argument." Freeman J. Dyson, New York Review of Books "Short, accessible, and authoritative." Carlin Romano, Philadelphia Inquirer "If you read one book on science and religion, this should be it." Kirkus Reviews
