A newly published book, “Sir John’s Vision: What Do We Know? What is There to Learn?” offers up a series of perspectives from prominent faith and science scholars on the impact of Sir John Templeton’s vision in creating the foundation that bears his name and has supported numerous efforts to promote integration of faith and science globally.
The 216-page book – edited by Paul Davies, George Ellis and Keith Ward – includes chapters from Philip Clayton, Owen Gingerich, Niels Henrik Gregersen, Harold Koenig, and Robert John Russell.
The thirteen essays in the book were written following a meeting in 2017 that marked the 105th anniversary of the birth of Sir John Templeton. The gathering in Lyford Cay in the Bahamas focused on how the Templeton Foundation could best extend his philanthropic vision into the 21st century.
The book was made available this month and published by Templeton Press, which has a dedicated religion and science unit.
