Annotation:In the form of a three-way dialogue between two Christian monks and a scientist, this book considers the parallels between recent trends or “paradigm shifts” in science and theology. In both form and content, it emphasizes the importance of engaging in dialogue across differences. Beginning with a general discussion about the relationship between science and theology, the participants ultimately draw out five parallels between new paradigmatic thinking in each of these disciplines. The book concludes by considering the social implications of new paradigm thinking in science and theology, emphasizing responsibility, justice, sustainability, dialogue, and collaboration.
