The Rev. Dr. John Polkinghorne was and remains a preeminent voice in faith and science. A mathematical physicist at Cambridge who then became an Anglican priest, he was a prolific writer with 36 published books to his name, 26 of which concern science and religion. We would recommend Belief in God in an Age of Science or The Polkinghorne Reader as good places to start. Of course, if you’d like something a bit shorter, take a look at the links highlighted in our blog post honoring Rev. Dr. Polkinghorne’s life. Or, if you prefer video formats, Closer to Truth has captured many of Polkinghorne’s ideas is this collection of interviews.
