God, Humanity and the Cosmos Reviews


"'This comprehensive work has the rare virtue of combining readableness with accurate and detailed judgements on the outstanding issues in past and contemporary interactions between science and religion. It is both the book for students we have been waiting for and also a refreshing survey of the field for those currently engaged in it.' Dr Arthur Peacocke, Ian Ramsey Centre, Oxford 'Not only is God, Humanity and the Cosmos directly addressed to teachers and students, and as such manages to be remarkably accessible; it also carefully addresses all the contemporary issues in the field, but in such a way that it moves the theology and science debate to the cutting edge of the current conversation.' Professor J. Wentzel van Huyssteen, Princeton Theological Seminary"
