A biography of John Polkinghorne; physicist and theologian,
This review is from: Quantum Leap: How John Polkinghorne Found God in Science and Religion (Paperback)
This is a book for those of you who enjoy the interaction of science and religion. John Polkinghorne is a mathematician, a particle physicist and an ordained minister of the Church of England. He is a professor of mathematical physics at Cambridge University and a fellow of the Royal Society.
This book will give some relief from the rhetoric of the New Atheists, who offer us a false dichotomy between science and religion. Polkinghorne is an example of how this is not true, one can be both a scientist and a theist, and be true to oneself.
The book is endorsed by Dr Owen Gingerich, Alister McGrath, Philip Yancey and Charles Townes. And one of the co-authors Karl Giberson is a professor of physics, and co-authored the book `The Language of Science and Faith' with Frances Collins.
