"A beautifully clear and well-informed exploration of the relation between science and religion in general, and between quantum physics and Christian theology in particular, in dialogue with a gallery of historical and contemporary authors—with user-friendly features such as key terms and discussion questions."
—Ian G. Barbour
"It takes theological courage to argue that the immanent Trinity exists in simultaneous superposition with the economic Trinity and evolves within the entangled life of God with creation. Ernest Simmons has a courage I admire. This book courageously brings Christian faith and quantum physics into creative mutual interaction. Get ready for an unforgettable adventure!"
Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary
"Writing from the richly inter-disciplinary world, Ernest Simmons draws creatively on the physics of quantum mechanics to illumine the foundational Christian doctrine of the Trinity. In clear and often vivid language he appropriates the wealth of the biblical and historical roots of the doctrine and metaphorically engages such scientific notions as relational holism and quantum indeterminacy to illumine God's dynamic inter-relatedness and fecundity in creation, incarnation, and sanctification. This volume is a beautiful gift to pastors, theological students, and all people of faith seeking to commend Christian claims in a contemporary world valuing scientific views."
—Paul R. Sponheim
