You might think a book titled TIME AND ETERNITY belongs in the science review section, but if the subtitle, THE QUESTION OF TIME IN CHURCH, SCIENCE, AND THEOLOGY, isn't a tip-off otherwise, the chapters covering links between knowledge of time and religious perspectives certain supports its feature here. Scholar Antje Jackelen blends science, religion and philosophy to consider modern understandings of time, eternity, and more, using texts of church hymns in English, Swedish and German to consider relationships between God, time, and mankind. From connections between time and the Trinity to Christian understandings of death to overall Biblical references to time and its nature, TIME AND ETERNITY is a stimulating read.
