Thank God for EvolutionThank God for Evolution!
How the Marriage of Science and Religion Will Transform Your Life and Our World
by Michael Dowd / Hardcover / November 2007

Thank God for Evolution! presents in a lively and accessible manner the reasons why it is now possible to view evolution as a divine process. As a Christian minister, Dowd especially addresses the concerns that Christians have about evolution, but this book contains insights that will appeal to people of all faiths and of no faith. Fun and uplifting, Thank God for Evolution! goes beyond the current debate to offer up a whole new way of thinking about science, religion, and the meaning and purpose of our lives.

 


God  of Hope and the End of the WorldThe God of Hope and the End of the World
by John C. Polkinghorne / Hardcover / 2002 *

"This well-informed and clearly written book places the reader before the ultimate choice: the futility of cosmic decay or the final fulfillment of God's creation. Polkinghorne offers compelling arguments for the belief that divine love is the ground of a true and everlasting hope. I highly recommend the book to skeptic and believer alike."-- Miroslav Volf, Yale University


Faith, ScienceFaith, Science, and Understanding
by John C. Polkinghorne / Hardcover / Oct 2000*

In this captivating book, one of the most highly-regarded scientist- theologians of our time offers a thought-provoking exploration of the interaction between science and theology. John Polkinghorne defends the place of theology in the university, discusses the role of revelation in religion, and focuses closely on reconciling what science can say about the processes of the universe with theology's belief in a God active within creation.

Christianity and Ecology : Seeking the Well-Being of Earth and Humans (Religions of the World and Ecology, 3)
by Dieter T. Hessel (Editor), Rosemary Radford Ruether (Editor) Paperback / 700 pp / Mar 2000

 

"This collection is by far the richest, most diverse, theologically sophisticated, ecologically informed, and innovative body of writings on Christianity that I have yet come across...It should be read not only by all theologians, but also by students and any others interested in the relevance of Christian faith to the healing of the Earth." -- John F. Haught, Professor of Theology, Georgetown University

Belief in GodBelief in God in an Age of Science
John C. Polkinghorne / Paperback / Oct 1999 *

Atheists must exercise new caution when invoking modern science to advance their views. An Anglican priest and a theoretical physicist, Polkinghorne articulates a faith strengthened, not threatened, by the latest scientific research. Whether puzzling over the curious fit between the laws of physics and the requirements for life or tracing the similarities between the methods of the scientist and those of the theologian, Polkinghorne reasons with rare sophistication. -- Booklist
Also in hardcover.

God After DarwinGod After Darwin:
A Theology of Evolution
by John F. Haught / Hardcover / Nov 1999 *

"A lucid, learned, and liberating book with a new insight on almost every page. A pleasure to read, God After Darwin subtly rearranges the religious furniture in your head. Haught's thought-provoking proposals, especially his view of God as the dynamic, loving power of the future with a vision rather than a plan for this evolving universe, deserves wide readership and discussion." -- Elizabeth A. Johnson, Fordham University


  

Finding Darwin's GodFinding Darwin's God:
A Scientist's Search for Common Ground Between God and Evolution
by Kenneth R. Miller / Hardcover / Sep 1999 *

"Religion's answer to Stephen Jay Gould's scientific atheism, Kenneth R. Miller, Brown's superstar in biology and religion, here shows not only why Darwinian evolution does not preclude the existence of God, but how remarkably consistent evolution is with religion.' Written with sharp wit and in pungent prose, his book redefined the entire debate by showing the true meaning of the science represented by the name of Darwin." -- Jacob Neusner, Distinguished Research Professor of Religions Studies, University of South Florida & Bard College


When Science Meets ReligionWhen Science Meets Religion
by Ian G. Barbour / Paperback / May 2000 *

Barbour's latest book demonstrates both the depth of his expertise and his ability to present complex ideas in digestible formats (no doubt honed during years of teaching undergraduates at Carleton College). "When Science Meets Religion" is short and to the point, making it perfect introductory material for general readers or students. -- Beliefnet, June 2000


How We BelieveHow We Believe:
The Search for God in an Age of Science
by Michael Shermer / Hardcover / Oct 1999*

Why do so many believe in the existence of something so inexplicable? That's exactly what Shermer answers in this comprehensive, intelligent, and highly readable discussion about the nature of faith.
Also available in audio cassette (abridged)


Reconstructing Nature:
The Engagement of Science and Religion (Glasgow Gifford Lectures)

by John Hedley Brooke, Geoffrey Cantor / Paperback / May 2000

"Various things can prompt people to cheer out loud: the scoring of a goal, a fine soprano aria. If, like me, you can be moved to such a response by a good book, then have planty of throat medication to hand for this one. You'll need it. The authors ... present a series of essays (originally Gifford lectures) illustrating a wide range of approaches to the historical study of the interactions of science and religion.... The copious references make this book an excellent resource as well as a good read. -- Review by Michael Fuller in Church Times, 1 January 1999


Rock of AgesRocks of Ages:
Science and Religion in the Fullness of Life
by Stephen Jay Gould / Hardcover / Mar 1999 *

Gould once again renders the complex simple, mending the seeming split between the two "Rocks of Ages," science and religion.

Available in audio cassette (abridged)
