Mary Gerhart and Allan Russell have been writing articles on science and religion together for 25 years. Their collaboration developed out of the conviction that both science and theology are such highly developed and complicated fields that their interaction is best studied by two persons - one from each field - working together. In their efforts to map science and theology together, these are some of the questions they address* Do a theologian and a scientist see the same thing when they look at the world?; Does myth play a role in science as it does in religion?; How do metaphors function in science and religion?; Why don't religious understandings change in a rational way - the way understandings in science do?; Is theology required to take account of all of natural science when natural science is allowed to pick and choose the mathematics it uses?; If we think of science as having texts can we apply to them the hermeneutical methods of religion?; When scientists and theologians discuss religious ideas, what (literary) form does their discussion take?; and can the weirdness found in quantum physics provide an insight into the way God acts in the world?
