Science and Theology by Professor Ted Peters
Book DescriptionHow can we think about God's action in a quantum world of indeterminacy? in a world that began with a Big Bang? in a world in which life evolved and is continually evolving? in a world governed by entropy and heading toward its eventual heat death? These are some of the most perplexing questions that have arisen from the rapid scientific and technological advances of the twentieth century.Science and Theology: The New Consonance grapples with these seeming conundrums by asking both scientists and religious thinkers to reflect upon possible solutions. In this exciting, new edited volume, physicists think about the connection between physics and faith and biologists discuss evolution, ethics, and the future. Complementing these viewpoints, theologians address these same issues from a religious standpoint.Chapter authors include Nobel Prize--winning physicist and inventor of the laser, Charles Townes, along with Pope John Paul II. The resulting interplay between science and theology presses toward consonance, encouraging comparisons, crossovers, and complementarity.

God-The World's Future, Paperback (July 2015)
God-The World's Future has been a proven textbook in systematic theology for over twenty years. This third edition is explicitly crafted to address our postmodern context and explains the whole body of Christian historical doctrine from within a "proleptic" framework.
Roots of Religion, Hardback (December 2014)
The cognitive science of religion is a new discipline that looks at the roots of religious belief in the cognitive architecture of the human mind. This book deals with the philosophical and theological implications of the cognitive science of religion which grounds religious belief in human cognitive structures: religious belief is 'natural'.
Christian Moral Theology in the Emerging Technoculture, Hardback (January 2014)
Machines and gadgets not only weave the fabric of daily life, but more importantly embody philosophical and religious values which shape the contemporary moral vision-a vision that is often at odds with Christian convictions. This book critically examines those values.
Cyborg Selves, Hardback (May 2012)» View all books by Professor Ted Peters
Aims to clarify theological and philosophical dialogue on the posthuman by arguing that theologians must pay attention to which form of the posthuman they are engaging, and to demonstrate that a "posthuman theology" is not only possible, but desirable, when the vision of the posthuman is one which coincides with a theological vision of the human.
