Overview

Science and the spiritual quest come together in this work to produce a reliable and engaging introduction to the chief questions raised at the nexus of science and religion. Sharpe, a leader in the field, ably and engagingly seeks the reality of God in the world, even as he eschews traditional theological terms and authorities. Well- versed in the latest developments in physics and cosmology, biology and neuroscience, Sharpe provides fascinating accounts of how contemporary knowledge expands our notions of reality, and he queries the new scientific gurus for the substance and religious pertinence of their visions. Sharpe shows how they bear on questions of the origins of the universe, how divine action might be understood, immanence and transcendence, human freedom, morality, the presence of evil, and the mystery at the heart of the universe. This text can be viewed as a mini-course in philosophy of religion as affected by contemporary science.
