Exploring Reality by J. C. Polkinghorne


Exploring Reality by J. C. Polkinghorne

This book continues the exploration of Christian theology through the prism of scientific enquiry, examining in particular the human reality of god in Jesus Christ, the diversity of human perspectives and the moral challenges of human life, including the difficulties of applying ethical principles in the novel and unprecedented situations presented by current scientific advances. The book covers a brad spectrum of current scientific thinking, including the nature of time and reality, and quantum theory, chaos theory and the relationship between them, but the author undertakes not to use ideas without offering a non-technical explanation of them!
