A new edition of this concise and accessible introduction to the interaction of science and theology by a bestselling Christian author. How do science and theology interact? What can be gained by exploring Christian theology using the insights of the natural sciences? Can a synergy be found? Is there a defensible natural theology within the scope and framework of a revealed God? In the three volumes of "A Scientific Theology" (T&T Clark, 2001-2003), Alister E McGrath produced a groundbreaking work proposing a mutual cross-fertilization of ideas and approaches: a scientific theology based on the present and past relationships between Christian theology and the natural sciences. In "The Science of God," Professor McGrath provides a summary of and introduction to the major themes examined in the series. He outlines all the main ideas on Christian theology both philosophically and historically, discussing their relationships with the natural sciences. This unique approach results not simply in a traditional introduction to systematic theology, nor in an introduction to the science versus religion debate, but in a highly readable guide to Christian theology as a systematic theology enriched by the natural sciences, conceived and presented as a legitimate and coherent intellectual discipline with it's own sense of identity, place and purpose.
