Abstract:

Romancing the Universe urges a new symmetry in our modern quest for truth, one that allows theology to incorporate science into its doctrines while refusing to diminish the contribution theology can make to science. Sobosan discusses the scientific and theological aspects of many of the major themes in cosmology, including the beginning and end of the universe, the origins of matter and life, the presence of cosmic order, the possibility of intelligent life elsewhere in the universe, and the aesthetics of scientific theorizing - all with language that makes difficult concepts clear and interesting to general readers.
