-- Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences (CTNS)
"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."
"A good example of the fruitful disciplinary dialogue between the natural sciences and theology that enriches both communities and the educated public."
Reviews in Religion & Theology
"A valuable gateway to understanding the concept of light. There appears no other collection which offers such a rich sampling of work on the topic and the issues it naturally invokes."
Church Times (UK)
"A model of the kind of integration of science and theology which looks confidently past some of the stale arguments between science and belief. . . . Each contribution is an elegant and erudite engagement with this theme from a different perspective."
