Overview

Creation and the World of Science: The Re-Shaping of Belief / Edition 2

Arthur Peacocke's 1978 Bampton Lectures were published as Creation and the World of Science, a key work in initiating the explosion of interest in the relation of religion and theology to the sciences. This new reprinting, with a special supplement bringing up to date the references and the exposition of the author's current views, makes it available again both to a new generation of students and investigators and to the wider public, as an eminently readable and accessible account of contemporary issues in the relation of science and religion.
