Titled Cosmology, Ecology, and the Energy of God and edited by professors Donna Bowman and Clayton Crockett  of the University of Central Arkansas, it is a collection of essays that situate theology within the context of 21st century science, particularly in relation to what science defines as “energy.” In it one reads about the elusive and enigmatic dark energy and dark matter, about light, and how scientifically informed theologies offer valuable alternatives in regards to our modern energy crises. 1,209 more words
