During the last year of his life, Arthur Peacocke worked to formulate a final comprehensive statement of his proposal for reconciling religious faith and the results of the sciences today. Strikingly frank about the need for Christian theologians and religious persons generally to face the dramatic impasse between religion and the naturalistic assumptions of contemporary science, Peacocke formulated a "theistic naturalism" that harmonizes core theological commitments with the science-based worldview of evolution and emergence. His groundbreaking "Essay in Interpretation," which sketches the interrelations between God, nature, and humanity, will prove a nascent classic in the field and a touchstone for further reflection. Ten leading thinkers were invited to respond to Peacocke's new proposal. Led by editor Philip Clayton, they include: Donald M. Braxton, Willem B. Drees. Philip Hefner, Christopher C. Knight, Nancey Murphy, Ann Pederson, Karl E. Peters, Robert John Russell, and Keith Ward. In the last weeks and months of his life, Peacocke drew together a final set of reflections and replies to their chapters. Peacocke's "Nunc Dimittis," his personal theological reflections in the days before his death, completes this volume. Book jacket.

During the last year of his life, Arthur Peacocke raced against time to formulate a final comprehensive overview of his "emergentist - naturalist - panentheist" perspective. A group of ten specialists in science-and-religion then composed commentaries and critiques of Peacocke's new "Essay in Interpretation". In the last weeks and months of his life, Peacocke drew together a final set of reflections on and replies to their chapters. Peacocke's "Nunc Dimittis," his final theological reflections in the days before his death, completes this volume. Peacocke's brief sketch of how God and nature and humanity interrelate will prove a nascent classic in the field and a touchstone for further reflection. Led by editor Philip Clayton, respondents include: Nancey Murphy, Ann Pederson, Philip Hefner, John Polkinghorne, Karl E. Peters, Donald M. Braxton, Robert John Russell, Keith Ward, Christopher C. Knight, and Willem B. Drees.

Philip Clayton (Ed)

Philip Clayton is Ingraham (M.A., M.Phil., Ph.D., Yale University) is Professor of Theology at the Claremont School of Theology and professor of philosophy and religion at Claremont Graduate University in Claremont, California. He is also the author of Explanation from Physics to Philosophy: An Essay in Rationality and Religion (Yale) and the Templeton Prize,winning book God and Contemporary Science (Eerdmans).Dr. Clayton's quest is to develop a constructive Christian theology in dialogue with metaphysics, modern philosophy, and science. The demands of this task have led to his work and publications in the theory of knowledge; the history of philosophy and theology; the philosophy of science; physics, evolutionary biology and the neurosciences; comparative theology; and constructive metaphysics. A panentheist, he defends a form of process theology that is hypothetical, dialogical and pluralistic as evident in the edited work In Whom We Live and Move and Have Our Being: Panentheistic Reflections on God's Presence in a Scientific World and The Problem of God in Modern Thought .

Arthur Peacocke

Peacocke worked in the field of physical biochemistry for over 25 years and is a Priest and Canon in the Church of England, and until recently was Director of the Ian Ramsey Centre for the Study of Science and Religion at Oxford University.
