Quantum Leap

Full Product Description

"I cannot think of a more trustworthy guide than John Polkinghorne, who holds up both ends of the science/faith debate." - Philip Yancey

Quantum Leap is a reader-friendly and at times humorous book that thoroughly engages the reader into the story of how John Polkinghorne found God in Science and religion.

Dr. John Polkinghorne established himself as one of Britain's finest particle physicists with his role in producing the theory of the smallest existing particle: the quark. After 25 years of respected scientific research - including a post as professor of mathematical physics at Cambridge University - Dr. Polkinghorne decided to resign and become an Anglican priest and theologian.

It is therefore Polkinghorne's deep roots in the practice of science that makes Dean Nelson's book so interesting. "Quantum Leap" is not only a biography of a fascinating man, but also explores the view of God from a Scientist's perspective. Some of the most intriguing questions are explored from this scientific point of view, including "Why do we pray?" and "What is the purpose of the Universe?"
