John Polkinghorne brings unique qualifications to his exploration of the possibilities of believing in God in an age of science: he is internationally known as a theoretical physicist and as a theologian. In this thought-provoking book, Polkinghorne focuses on the collegiality between science and theology, contending that the inquiries of these "intellectual cousins" are parallel.

"Polkinghorne [presents] a polished and logically coherent argument."—Freeman J. Dyson, New York Review of Books

"Short, accessible, and authoritative."—Carlin Romano, Philadelphia Inquirer

"This book should be widely read."—Colin Tudge, New Statesman and Society

"If you read one book on science and religion, this should be it."—Kirkus Reviews
