Abstract and Keywords

The indifference of liberal theologians to science has recently begun to give way to a new round of engagement. Scholars with dual training in science and theology, such as Ian Barbour and Arthur Peacocke, have contributed to a growing movement to relate theology to developments in science, and have also argued for significant epistemological similarities between the two sorts of disciplines. This article presents an interesting point of contact between theology and the natural sciences. It discusses creation, cosmology, and eschatology; the existence of God, and evil; reductionism, providence, and divine action; evolution, design, and the fall; and neuroscience and the human creature.

Keywords: neuroscience, theology, creation, cosmology, eschatology, evolution, divine action, providence
