John Polkinghorne, as scientist and Christian, is regularly cited as a counter-example to the idea that science and religion are incompatible. Here, editor TJ Oord, has collected key chapters, from more than John Polkinghorne’s thirty books, which explore Christianity’s compatibility with science…I recommend this book to students of philosophy as a book worth arguing over. Christian students, meanwhile, will find the later focus on more specific doctrinal issues particularly of interest.”
