About this book

As advanced by astronomer-cosmologist Sir Fred Hoyle, astronomy, biology, astrobiology, astrophysics, and cosmology converge agreeably with natural theology. In The Big Bang and God, these interdisciplinary convergences are developed by an astronomer collaborating with a theologian.

About the authors

Chandra Wickramasinghe is a world-renowned astronomer-astrobiologist. He is also a long-time research collaborator with Sir Fred Hoyle. They discovered organic molecules in interstellar space and advanced 'cometary panspermia' (the idea that water and organic matter are circulated by comets).


Theodore Walker Jr. is a liberty-oriented process theologian who serves on the advisory board for the journal Process Studies and as a guest editor for the astro-theology volumes of the Journal of Cosmology.

Reviews

"Any book that builds bridges between the cosmologist Fred Hoyle and the process philosopher Charles Hartshorne is sure to prove valuable to the modern-day revival of natural theology. The authors of The Big Bang and God are authoritative, and they build their bridges in bite-sized pieces a novel approach akin to poetry.' - Larry Witham, journalist and author of Piero's Light and Where Darwin Meets the Bible
