Arthur Peacocke, eminent priest scientist, has collected thirteen of his essays for this volume.

Previously published in various academic journals and edited books, the provocative essays expand upon the theme of the evolution of nature, humanity and belief.

They are grouped in three parts: Natural Evolution, covering topics ranging from the implications of determined chaos: biology evolution and Christianity theology: chance, potentiality and God: and complexity, emergence and divine creativity.

Humanity Evolving in the Presence of God, articulating God's presence in and to the world as it is unveiled by the sciences: the chrysalis of the human: the nature and purpose of man in science and Christian theology.

Theological Evolution - the Re-shaping of Belief, dealing with science and the future of theology; public truth in religion; the incarnation of the self-expressive word of God; DNA; and the challenges and possibilities of western theism.

In the epilogue, Dr. Peacocke discusses wisdom in science and education, referring to Robert Grosseteste, a medieval scientist-theologian.
