This book, by Stanley L. Jaki and published in 1978 by the University of Chicago press, is a treatise on the interconnections of science and religion. From the publisher:
Originally presented as the Gifford Lectures for 1975 and 1976 at the University of Edinburgh, this challenging work illuminates the intimate connection between scientific creativity and natural theology. Stanley L. Jaki draws heavily upon the history and philosophy of science to show that a rational belief in the existence of a Creator, or at least an epistemology germane to such a belief, played a crucial role in the rise of science and in all its great creative advances.
Jaki, a scientist and Benedictine priest and distinguished professor at Seton Hall University, was the sixth American Gifford lecturer, following William James, Josiah Royce, John Dewey, Paul Tillich, and Reinhold Niebuhr.
