Item description for Spiritual Information: 100 Perspectives on Science and Religion by Charles Harper...
Overview Spiritual Information is a collection of one hundred essays that explore a portion of the vast interdisciplinary approaches to the study of science and religion. Individually and together, the essays show how the study of ourselves, our planet, and the universe helps us understand our place as spiritual beings within God's universe. The book is a tribute to Sir John Templeton and his pioneering commitment toward new research that results in "one hundredfold more spiritual information than humankind has ever possessed before." It begins with essays that reflect on Sir John's principal domains of interest and expertise: free-enterprisebased finance and accelerating spiritual progress. Themes of the sections are: Science-Religion Dialogue; Cosmology, Physics, and Astronomy; Mathematics, Musicology, and Speculation; Biological Evolution-the Human Being; Social Evolution-the Human Mind and Heart; Religion and Health; The Nature of the Divine; Theology and Philosophy; Faith Traditions. "Sir John's leadership has enabled us to edge evercloser to the frontier where knowledge meets wisdom at the threshold of 'ultimate reality,'" notes the editor in the preface to this volume. As Spiritual Information presents an overview of how far we have come in the science and religion dialogue, it also opens windows to the vast possibilities for additional research and further advances in spiritual information.

Science and Relilgion Jul 30, 2005
This book has an amazing collection of essays that touch on religion and science. My favorites are those by Charles Harper, Jr. (who discusses how much humans can ever know) and by Freeman Dyson (who discusses literature as a vehicle for expanding our minds).
