Faith and Wisdom in Science

Tom McLeish

  • Communicates science from within real stories over a timespan of millennia
  • Argues that science can be a deeply religious activity
  • Takes the most significant Biblical book for science to be Job (rather than e.g. Genesis)
  • Takes the most significant science area for thinking about science and meaning/purpose as Statistical Mechanics (rather than e.g. Quantum Mechanics or Cosmology)
  • Insists that rather than debating "science and theology" we need both "science of theology" and a "theology of science"
  • Readers will be able to use suggestions practically, whether in church, politics or university
