Synopsis

Through his writing, teaching and public speaking, Charles Birch has drawn attention to the relationship between science and religion and the ways in which they shape our attitudes to the world around us. In this timely book, he discusses the influences on his life and work that led to him forming a philosophy that combines science and religion. With a series of conversational snapshots of his mentors, including some of the most eminent scientists, philosophers and theologians of the 20th century such as Paul Tillich and Reinhold Niebuhr, Birch shows how his ideas developed. In the second part of the book he explains the philosophy that he came to form, known as 'Process Thought', which seeks to reconcile these opposites. This memoir summarises the influences on, the life and the work of an important Australian thinker and writer.
