On John Polkinghorne: Creation, Prayer, Miracles, and Time

Homebrewed Christianity Podcast

“John Polkinghorne said his being a physicist-priest might strike some like being a vegetarian-butcher. But in his writings, speaking, teaching, and ministry, he showed one could affirm the best of both science and theology. John died on March 9, 2021. I was privileged to work with him on several projects, including a book we called The Polkinghorne Reader. It included what he thought was the best excerpts from his various books. Tripp and I talked about his influential work as an open theist in the science-and-religion dialogue. Enjoy as we explore his ground-breaking ideas!” – Thomas Jay Oord You can head over HERE to join the Becoming Christian group in which Tom Oord and I are going line by line through the Apostle’s Creed.

Sir John Polkinghorne: Can a Scientist Pray?

Socrates in the City

British theoretical physicist Sir John Polkinghorne examines how scientific discoveries of the 20th century, particularly quantum theory and chaos theory, disrupted the “clockwork universe” view of the world that prevailed for about 200 years after Newton. Polkinghorne explores how a world that does not behave in a reliable way, that is described not deterministically but rather probabilistically, might comport better with the notion of prayer than the mechanical view of the world that preceded it. This event took place in New York City in 2004.The post Sir John Polkinghorne: Can a Scientist Pray? first appeared on Socrates in the City.
