What can theology learn from the scientific method? -- Confronting the comfort of polarisation -- Uncertainty and the 'idolatry of infallibility' -- The power of prayer: efficacy of remote intercessory prayer? -- Myster and creativity in science: reflection on and revaluation in a painting -- Evolution and incarnation
Mystery is only one step behind the best insights of science and theology. This book deals with the methodology common to both and concludes that all knowledge reflects the culture in which it was articulated and is provisional in the sense that it can always be improved. Failure to respect this lies at the heart of much of the polarisation currently seen in religion and elsewhere.
