  • 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.

    "In this fascinating volume both scientists and theologians discuss the concept of light in their respective fields and find points of contact through viewing light as both metaphor, analogy, and symbol. I am delighted to recommend Light from Light to scholars as well as those interested in a readable account of the interactions between theology and science." - Robert John Russell - Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences (CTNS)
