- Author: Pierre Conway;Mary Michael Spangler
This book addresses the relationship between religion and science, presenting a religious outlook that both explains and encompasses science based on insights from Aristotle and St. Thomas Aquinas. These insights are not confrontational, nor stated as running on parallel lines with modern science, but are suggested as penetrating to the very roots of modern science in its dialectical nature. As a result, the Christian religion need not fear the contradiction of modern science, and an even deeper understanding of this science itself is suggested.
