Overview

Winner of Prize for Outstanding Book in Theology and the Natural Sciences

As science crafts increasingly detailed accounts of human nature, what has become of the soul?

This collaborative project strives for greater consonance between contemporary science and Christian faith. Outstanding scholars in biology, genetics, neuroscience, cognitive science, philosophy, theology, biblical studies, and ethics join here to offer contemporary accounts of human nature consistent with Christian teaching. Their central theme is a nondualistic account of the human person that does not consider the "soul" an entity separable from the body; scientific statements about the physical nature of human beings are about exactly the same entity as are theological statements concerning the spiritual nature of human beings.

For all those interested in fundamental questions of human identity posed by the present context, this volume will provide a fascinating and authoritative resource.

The contributors to this book have really done their homework in order to put together an excellent scholastic work that bridges the works of psychology, theology, and philosophy with the hard sciences. This book really should be a must read for those going in to the soul professions (theology, philosophy, psychology). One of the most impressive facets of this book is that it deals with sensitive and controversial issues in a bold, yet sensitive manner. The book integrates the good levels of scholarship from the different fields.
