"What has wonder, that apparently innocent feeling of amazement so common in little ""children, to do with wisdom, often thought to be the privilege of those who are old? ""What has theology and religious experience to do with scientific investigation ""of the natural world?" Professor Celia Deane-Drummond's exploration of these themes expands thedialogue between science and religion. She begins her study with reflectionson the emotion of wonder, tracing the history of its meaning from its Indo-European roots to the present, focusing on the experience of the naturalworld, including that described by contemporary cosmology.Incorporating insights from both Eastern and Western religious traditions, as well as African spirituality, she segues to a discussion of wisdom. Sheconsiders: natural wisdom, looking at evolutionary convergence and design inthe natural world and how it might mesh with theological understanding ofnatural wisdom; human identity; and the notion of God as wisdom. She also discusses the origin of the cosmos and the role of God as creator, as well as whether there is wisdom in nature and what the role, if any, of neuroscience in wisdom as a facet of human nature might be. Returning to the theme of wonder, she muses on wonder as it relates tothe wisdom of God and the wisdom of the cross. She shows that by weavingwonder and wisdom together, a deeper spirituality can surface that integratestheology and science. "If wisdom is the voice for theology at the boundaryof science, so wonder reminds theology that science too offers its own wisdomthat needs to be taken into account," she concludes.
