Light from Light: Scientists and Theologians in Dialogue

Light from Light: Scientists and Theologians in Dialogue

Edited by Gerald O'Collins and Mary Ann Meyers
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Company, January 2012

In this volume renowned scientists and theologians discuss the concept of light as understood by modern physics and employed by biblical and patristic writers. Light from Light deepens readers' understanding of light as posited by recent cosmological and physical theories, drawing connections with "light" as a theological metaphor. Striking glimpses into new scientific developments offer additional insight and interest.

Edited by Christopher S. Henshilwood and Francesco d’Errico
John Benjamins Publishing Company, October 2011

The emergence of symbolic culture, classically identified with European cave paintings of the Ice Age, is now seen, in the light of recent groundbreaking discoveries, as a complex nonlinear process rooted in a remote past and in different regions of the planet.
