Beyond Science by John Polkinghorne
Book DescriptionJohn Polkinghorne has had a distinguished career as a particle physicist and as an author of books exploring themes in science and religion. In Beyond Science Polkinghorne examines the nature of scientific inquiry itself and the human context in which science operates.

Throughout, Polkinghorne offers an accessible and personal view of science and its relationship to the human spirit.
