Toward a Theology of Nature: Essays on Science and Faith

Pannenberg, Wolfhart

 Pannenberg, who is Professor of Systematic Theology at the University of Munich, is an unusual theologian. Instead of adapting theology to science, he "criticizes the scientific vision of nature as incomplete; and he...challenge[s] scientists to consider incorporating God" into their views of nature, points out editor Ted Peters, himself an American theologian. The first chapter presents theological questions directed at scientists. Pannenberg deals in succeeding chapters with the Doctrine of Creation and Modern Science, God and Nature, Contingency and Natural Law, the Doctrine of the Spirit and the Task of a Theology of Nature, Spirit and Energy, and Spirit and Mind. Throughout he quotes and wrestles with the concepts of scientists, not theologians. He cites not only physicists but biologists, anthropologists, and psychologists. Although the theology he relates to science is Christianity, religious thinkers of all the world religions, had they the acumen, background information, and understanding, could do for their faiths what Pannenberg has done here for Christianity.
