Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co. Light from Light: Scientists and Theologians in Dialogue

In 2009, the John Templeton foundation summoned leading theologians and scientists to Istanbul, Turkey, near ancient home of the Nicene Creed to discuss the Creeds phrase "Light from Light" in the context of modern scientific advancement and contemporary theological discourse. This book is the documentation of that conference.

Featuring 14 contributors, Light from Light: Scientists and Theologians in Dialogue renowned scientists and theologians discuss the concept of light as understood by modern physics and employed by biblical and patristic writers. Light from Light deepens readers' understanding of light as posited by recent cosmological and physical theories, drawing connections with "light" as a theological metaphor. Striking glimpses into new scientific developments offer additional insight and interest.
