The Action of the Divine Scientist

  • Robert Crawford


In this chapter we concentrate on the action of God in the world, taking into account the views of scientists and theologians. It is difficult to involve a totally transcendent God in events but the other extreme of immanence equates him with the world. How can God be both in the experiment and yet beyond it? One suggestion is panentheism, which is suggested by both Ian Barbour and Arthur Peacocke. But John Polkinghorne does not like it and is joined by Keith Ward. Their views are discussed in the context of the current scientific view of time and space.
