After a brilliant career in the financial world, Sir John Templeton retired to devote his time and energy to funding research in science and religion. His humble approach in theology and science is based on the knowledge explosion of the past century. In the light of the exponential growth in scientific knowledge, he suggests ways "to encourage over 100 fold increase in new additional spiritual information, especially through science research, to supplement the wonderful ancient scriptures." In the appendix he asks 92 questions designed to encourage religious visionaries to engage the scientific age.
