Questões da Verdade

Science and religion are both vital to our understanding of the universe, and there is no contradiction between up-to-date science and Christianity. John Polkinghorne, renowned scientist-turned-theologian, demonstrates this clearly in a new book with collaborator Nicholas Beale. Questions of Truth outlines fifty-one important questions on science and religion and their responses by both Polkinghorne and Beale. The book has a foreword by Tony Hewish and an endorsement from William D Phillips - both Nobel Prizewinners - as well as endorsements from renowned evolutionary scientists Prof Martin Nowak and Dr Francis Collins. The science is solid, the responses intruiging. Questions posed in the book include:
