In these essays on the dialogue between science and Christian faith, Barbara Brown Taylor describes her own journey as a preacher who is trying to learn what insights of quantum physics, the new biology, and chaos theory can teach the believer. She seeks to discover why scientists sometimes sound like poets, and why physicists often use the language of imagination, ambiguity, and mystery also found in scripture.
In explaining why the church should care about the new discoveries and insights of the physical world, Taylor suggests ways we might close the gap between spirit and matter, between the secular and the sacred. For we live in the midst of a 'web of creation' where nothing is without consequence and where all things coexist in such a way that each of us by our very existence changes the world, whether we know it or not. In this 'luminous web' faith and science join on a single path, seeking to learn the same truths about life in the universe.
