THE NEW NATURAL THEOLOGY: A BRIDGING AND INTEGRATING MODE OF INQUIRY

Peter Barrett

Abstract


The burgeoning science-and-theology discourse of the past four decades has
produced a new natural theology, broadened beyond its traditional task of finding
arguments for the existence of God. Much of its concern has been to address the
evolutionary world-picture of the sciences and thence give a theistic account of the
universe. Here we suggest an account that draws upon the concepts of kenosis and
to kalon (the beautiful) – one that has implications for the teaching of science in
South Africa and for developing an inclusive theological approach to religious
pluralism.
