Ian G. Barbour is a physicist, theologian, author, and winner of the 1999
Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion. He is also the Winifred and Atherton
Bean Professor Emeritus of Science, Technology and Society at Carleton College
in Northfield, Minnesota. As a well-known pioneer in the growing field of
Science and Religion, Dr. Barbour established his reputation as an
interdisciplinary scholar by way of his influential book, Issues In Science
And Religion, first published in 1965. Since that time he has authored many
additional books and articles. For example, his book Myths, Models And
Paradigms has served as a useful tool for those persons who wish to study
the methodologies and approaches of scientists and scholars of religion. As a
follow-up to delivering his Gifford Lectures (1989-91), Dr. Barbour also
published Religion In An Age Of Science and Ethics In An Age Of
Technology. In recent years, his book entitled Religion And Science:
Historical And Contemporary Issues has often been used as a course textbook.
Dr. Barbour's latest book, When Science Meets Religion: Enemies, Strangers
Or Partners?, is now available in local area bookstores.
