A very well informed and profound book where Polkinghorne's deep expertise in two subjects is obvious. The writing is rather dense and it's not really an introduction in terms of what you need to know in the area of physics. Yet the book is very good in laying out the groundwork in the connections between theology and science. I'm not quite sure Polkinghorne covers much new ground or give many new insights, but he shows how science and theology certainly are complementary.
