Theology for a Scientific Age 1992–1993

Arthur Peacocke

Summary

Table of Contents

Abstract

The relation between Christian theology and developments in natural sciences is the subject of Peacocke’s inquiry. His aim is to answer basic questions of theology—about God’s existence, the divine attributes, the theodicy and the interaction between God and the world—with the help of discoveries in modern natural sciences such as quantum mechanics, the theory of relativity and new conceptions of causation. The result of the confrontation is that although many traditional beliefs like God’s image as a person or his interaction with the world do not contradict natural sciences, other concepts like that of God’s omnipotence and omniscience or his relation to time have to be reconsidered.
