A Bibliography of Science & ReligionTo Star Course Home Page

This is drawn from John Polkinghorne's excellent book Science & Theology (1998). I have made a few additions, in green.  John has also made (so far) one addition, in red. Where there are links, you can click on the book to get the amazon.com listing. Click on the UK and you get the amazon.co.uk listing.  I'm afraid it takes ages to make these links, so they will be updated gradually.  If you need a link urgently, EMail me.
