Covering a wide range science and technology, a new book shows how a dynamic God can act in the world without breaking the known principles of science.
Interactive World, Interactive God was recently released by Cascade Books, a division of Wipf & Stock, and is a collection of essays on a range of disciplines from nine respected scholars including Ted Peters, emeritus professor of systematic theology and ethics at Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary/California Lutheran University and the Graduate Theological Union at Berkeley, and Michael Spezio, associate professor of Psychology and Neuroscience and directs the Laboratory for Inquiry into Valuation and Emotion (LIVE) at Scripps College.
According to the book’s editors, the 21st century is bringing new scientific research capabilities and they are revealing that scientific results are not totally predictable after all. Certain types of interaction lead to outcomes that are in principle – unpredictable.
The book was edited by well-known faith and science scholars Carol Albright, John Albright and Mladen Turk. Carol Albright has been executive editor of Zygon: Journal of Religion and Science in addition to editing and publishing previous books including The Humanizing Brain. John Albright is professor emeritus of physics at Florida State University and Purdue University. He previously co-authored Introduction to Atomic and Nuclear Physics.
