Omtale Traces of God
Traces of God is a comprehensive and profound analysis of the main issues in John Polkinghorne's authorship.
The book explores following topics: - Rationality in science and theology, including an analysis of critical realism, scientific method, and the structure of knowledge - A revised natural theology, including an examination of the intelligibility of the world, the fine-tuning of the world, and the beauty of nature - God's action in the world, including an analysis of God as creator, God's providence, quantum physics, and chaos theory - The pedagogical applicability of Polkinghorne's theories, including a review of how his understanding, can stimulate dialogue in schools
Throughout Traces of God, Polkinghorne's position is discussed in the light of other science-theology contributors, such as Ian G. Barbour, Niels Henrik Gregersen, Alister E. McGrath, Nancy Murphy, WolfhartPannenberg, Arthur R. Peacocke, Ted Peters, Robert J. Russell, and J. Wentzel van Huyssteen
