John Polkinghorne (Author)

The Rev. Dr. John Charlton Polkinghorne, KBE, FRS is an English theoretical physicist, theologian, writer, and Anglican priest. He was professor of mathematical physics at the University of Cambridge from 1968 to 1979, when he resigned his chair to study for the priesthood. He became an ordained Anglican priest in 1982. He served as the president of Queens' College, Cambridge from 1988 until 1996. Polkinghorne is the author of five books on physics, and 26 on the relationship between science and religion. He was knighted in 1997 and in 2002 received the £1 million Templeton Prize, awarded for exceptional contributions to affirming life’s spiritual dimension.

  1. “The author displays the same virtues as a writer on science and religion that C.S. Lewis showed as an apologist for ‘mere’ Christianity: simplicity of style, accessibility to the general reader, and a deep learning.”
  2. “Religion and Science keep struggling, each for its own wholeness and also for the wholeness of the other, thanks largely to John Polkinghorne. This long-time professor and Anglican priest has been a dependable research physicist as well as a seeking theologian. He can help us see and feel truth even into its fourth dimension.”
    --The Living Church
  3. “Science illuminates the rational order of the universe. Religion is the encounter with God’s hidden presence. Far from opponents, both institutions complement each other, as do ethics and aesthetics. Polkinghorne makes that clear and accessible to lay people, whether they are inclined to religion or science.”
    --Modern Liturgy
  4. “[Polkinghorne] describes for the lay person the compatibility of science and religion. He demonstrates this in regard to the nature of God the creator, the richness of creation, prayer, and miracles."
    --Theology Digest
