Publisher's Weekly Review

Templeton Prize-winning scientist John Polkinghorne echoes familiar themes of rapprochement in Traffic in Truth: Exchanges Between Science and Theology. He presents the main argument he has trumpeted before that science and religion have much to teach each other and are engaged in a mutual quest for truth but in a shorter and more accessible format than he has offered in the past. Drawing upon his expertise in mathematics, physics and theology (Polkinghorne is an Anglican priest as well as an emeritus professor at Cambridge), he is persuasive in his argument that theology and science share "a common cause."
