Physicist and priest, Polkinghorne balances science and faith

Physicist and priest, Polkinghorne balances science and faith: “John Polkinghorne, 80, is one of the world’s most famous physicists, known in part for his role in explaining the existence of the quark, the smallest known particle. He is the former president of Queens College at Cambridge University in England, a member of the Royal Society, was knighted for his work on England’s standards for embryonic stem cell research and for the medical industry’s ethical positions, and winner of the Templeton Prize.

When he was in his 40s, he left the world of physics and became a priest in the Church of England. He has written more than 30 books on the relationship between faith and science, and is one of the world’s leading voices on that topic.”

I read one of his books about 50 years ago — quite good, if I remember correctly.
