This work is a fully updated new edition of this best-selling textbook in science and religion. This fully revised and updated edition of "God, Humanity and the Cosmos" includes new chapters by John Hedley Brooke, Paul D. Murray and David Wilkinson. In addition to a systematic exploration of contemporary perspectives in physics, evolutionary biology and psychology as they relate to theological descriptions of the universe, humanity and consciousness, the book now provides a thorough survey of the theological, philosophical and historical issues underpinning the science-religion debate. Contributors also examine such issues as theological responses to the ecological crisis and to biotechnology; how science is treated and valued in education; and the relation of science to Islamic thought.
"'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"
