Overview

Scholars of theology, religion, and the physical sciences honor Barbour as a pioneer and continuing stalwart in the movement to promote dialogue between scientists and religious leaders. They assess the current state of such discussions, and point to future challenges and dreams. After looking at his contributions to science and to methodology, they focus on his work with theological and ethical issues relating to god and nature; physics and cosmology; evolution, anthropology, and neuroscience; and technology and the environment. A final section offers theological perspectives on his work from the viewpoints of process, Roman Catholic, and Buddhist theology. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
