Foreword by Mary Ann Meyers^Recent years have seen an explosion of interest in the doctrine of panentheism -- the belief that the world is contained within the Divine, although God is also more than the world. Here for the first time leading scientists and theologians meet to debate the merits of this compelling new understanding of the God-world relation.^Atheist and theist, Eastern and Western, conservative and liberal, modern and postmodern, physicist and biologist, Orthodox and Protestant -- the authors explore the tensions between traditional views of God and contemporary science and ask whether panentheism provides a more credible account of divine action for our age. Their responses, which vary from deeply appreciative to sharply critical, are preceded by an overview of the history and key tenets of panentheism and followed by a concluding evaluation and synthesis.^Contributors: Joseph A. Bracken^Michael W. Brierley^Philip Clayton^Paul Davies^Celia E. Deane-Drummond^Denis Edwards^Niels Henrik Gregersen^David Ray Griffin^Robert L. Herrmann^Christopher C. Knight^Andrew Louth^Harold J. Morowitz^Alexei V. Nesteruk^Ruth Page^Arthur Peacocke^Russell Stannard^Keith Ward^Kallistos Ware

Arthur Peacocke (Ed)

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.

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 .
