Theology in a Polanyian Universe

The Theology of Thomas Torrance


Colin Weightman

Much has been written on the relationship of theology and science. But here, for the first time, is a book which provides a detailed exploration of Scottish theologian Thomas Torrance's work in theology and science, with emphasis on his interaction with philosopher of science Michael Polanyi. It also suggests new ways of understanding the mutual modification of theology and science.
The Author: Colin Weightman is an ordained minister of the Uniting Church in Australia. He received his Ph.D. through the Department of Studies in Religion at the University of Queensland. His education in mathematics and science, and his recent studies in theology and religion, equip him to examine this subject. Dr. Weightman has published articles in journals and has spoken on the relationship of theology and science at various conferences.
