Paperback
Twentieth-century science discovered that the physical world is deeply relational. In fact, the phenomenon of quantum entanglement implies that even the subatomic world cannot simply be treated atomistically. With that in mind, thirteen distinguished scholars from physics and theology here explore the role of relationality in both science and religion.

^^Besides containing expert accounts - both scientific and theological - this volume provides careful assessment of the significance that these insights have for the interdisciplinary discussion of a consonant relationship between science and religion - a topic of considerable importance. The Trinity and an Entangled World offers a uniquely authoritative and illuminating discussion and will prove to be an important contribution to the literature concerned with science and religion^



- Publisher Twentieth-Century science discovered that the physical world is profoundly relational-that, thanks to the phenomenon of quantum entanglement, there is a holistic connectivity at the deepest level of physical reality. This new way of comprehending the universe-which brings to mind the mystery at the heart of Trinitarian theology-has inspired thirteen distinguished scholars from physics and theology to explore the role of relationality in both science and religion.
