About this book

This book addresses a variety of important questions on nature, science, and spirituality: Is the natural world all that there is? Or is it possible to move ‘beyond nature’? What might it mean to transcend nature? What reflections of anything ‘beyond nature’ might be found in nature itself?

Gathering papers originally delivered at the 2018 annual conference of the European Society for the Study of Science and Theology (ESSSAT), the book includes contributions of an international group of scientists, philosophers, theologians and historians, all discussing nature and what may lie beyond it.

More than 20 chapters explore questions of science, nature, spirituality and more, including

  • Nature – and Beyond? Immanence and Transcendence in Science and Religion
  • Awe and wonder in scientific practice: Implications for the relationship between science and religion
  • The Cosmos Considered as a Moral Institution
  • The transcendent within: how our own biology leads to spirituality
  • Preserving the heavens and the earth: Planetary sustainability from a Biblical and educational perspective

Issues in Science and Theology: Nature – and Beyond will benefit a broad audience of students, scholars and faculty in such disciplines as philosophy, history of science, theology, and ethics.
