Pannenberg says the scientific view of nature is incomplete and challenges scientists to incorporate the idea of God into their picture of nature. First he provides a commentary and critique of groundbreaking insights of post-World War II philosophers of science and offers insight on the sociology of knowledge, which open conversation between theologians and scientists. Then he presents theology as the "science of God," showing that the world we live in is "a creature of a creating God."
Pannenberg poses theological questions to natural scientists that illuminate his personal position on issues dealing with theology and the natural sciences, especially physics, reviewing the relationship between natural law and contingency, the importance of the spirit in the phenomenon of life, field theory, language, and the theological account for the nature of God and God's creative activity.
