Robert John Russell, Nancey Murphy, and William R. Stoeger, S.J., editors
This collection of thirteen essays assesses the scholarly contribution of the series Scientific Perspectives on Divine Action , comprised of five volumes resulting from international research conferences co-sponsored by the Vatican Observatory and the Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences between 1991 and 2000. The overarching goal of the series was to advance the engagement of constructive theology with the natural sciences with special attention to the theme of divine action and to investigate the philosophical and theological elements within science.
The volume is divided into three sections: In Section One, contributors review the history of the series and the development of new research methodology; in Section Two, authors provide philosophical analysis of specific issues in the series; and in Section Three, contributors offer theological analyses of specific issues.
Contributors: Robert John Russell, George Ellis, Philip Clayton, Nancey Murphy, Wesley Wildman, Niels Henrik Gregersen, Arthur Peacocke, William R. Stoeger, S.J., Thomas F. Tracy, Keith Ward, Kirk Wegter-McNelly, and Mark Worthing.
