According to Holmes Rolston III, there are fundamental questions
that science alone cannot answer; these questions are the central
religious questions. He uses the scientific method of inquiry to
distill key issues from science, and then he integrates them in a
study that begins with matter and moves through life, mind,
culture, history, and spirit. Incorporating religious and
scientific worldviews, he begins with an examination of two natural
sciences: physics and biology. He then extrapolates examples from
two human sciences: psychology and sociology. Next, he moves to the
storied universe and world history, raising and addressing
religious questions. "Never in the histories of science and
religion have theopportunities been greater for fertile interaction
between these fields, with mutual benefits to both," states
Rolston. The re-publication of this book provides current
researchers and students in the field an invaluable, timeless
methodological resource.The new introduction offers updated
insights based on new scientific research.
