Item description for Science and the Renewal Of Belief by Russell Stannard...

Overview
Originally published to high acclaim in Great Britain and now updated and available for the first time in a U.S. edition, this book sheds light on ways in which science and religion influence each other and can help each other. Russell Stannard is known for cutting through highly technical data and presenting it clearly and simply. In this book, he begins with a discussion of evolution and literal interpretation of the Bible, including a scrutiny of the miracles of the New Testament. He shows how original sin can be viewed as an example of a traditional doctrine that is not eroded, but rather strengthened, by modern science. Through the use of simple analogies, he shows how relativity theory and quantum theory relate to Christian beliefs in the Trinity and the divine-human nature of Christ. Additionally, relativity, when looked at from another perspective, can shed light on time and eternity. Stannard offers fresh insight into the trials experienced by Galileo, the problem of pain, the question of free will, and the power of steadfast prayer. He speculates that some writings of Kierkegaard about truth and paradox may have influenced the physicist Niels Bohr eighty years later in his thoughts about the wave-particle dualism. He juxtaposes questions about the intrinsic nature of God and of Jesus with questions on the nature of light and electrons. Science and the Renewal of Belief was lauded in its UK edition for its imaginative examples, ingenious analogies, and its touches of humor.

Publishers Description

Originally published in Great Britain and now updated and available for the first time in a U.S. edition, this book is a critically acclaimed work by a renowned theologian-scientist.

Russell Stannard is known for cutting through highly technical data and presenting it clearly and simply. In "Science and the Renewal of Belief" he sheds light on ways in which science and religion influence each other and can help each other. Science and logic cannot establish belief, he says, but belief can be confirmed and renewed with the changed perspective of modern science.

The many reviews of the U.K. edition of his book cite his lucid presentation of relativity and quantum theory, and the way he uses relativity to explore time and eternity, and indeterminacy to comment on free will. He is also praised for offering fresh insight into original sin, the trials experienced by Galileo, the problem of pain, the possibility of miracles, the evidence for the resurrection, the credibility of incarnation, and the power of steadfast prayer. By introducing simple analogies, Stannard clears up misunderstandings that have muddied the connections between science and religion, and suggests contributions that the pursuit of physical science can make to theology.
