The beginning of all things; science and religion.


The beginning of all things; science and religion.

Kung, Hans.

W.B. Eerdmans


220 pages




Kung (ecumenical theology emeritus, U. of Tubingen) holds that scientific and theological precepts are in fact compatible, particularly at the level of the beginnings of the universe, of humans, and of free will. He makes allies of the Big Bang and divine creation, compares scientific proof and the questionability of reality, and shows how explanations of existence by science and theology are in fact compatible. He balances creation with evolution, analyzes the being and work of God in the shape of the cosmos, comes up with mutually satisfying reasons for the genesis of humans, and takes a short foray into the similarities between what both camps understand will be the end.
