About-

'I am a scientist-theologian, someone who is both a physicist and a priest - a statement that sometimes arouses the kind of curiosity or suspicion that might follow the claim to be a vegetarian butcher.'

Cambridge don, curate in a working-class area of a big city, vicar of a country parish in Kent, contributor to governmental committees, prize-winning author of more than thirty-five books, KBE and much more, John Polkinghorne tells his remarkable life story in a direct and modest yet profound narrative.

He looks back on his journeys into both disciplines from a human angle, including the formative experiences and key relationships he experienced as a child, an undergraduate, graduate and beyond into university teaching, family life, priesthood and writing. He describes his developing thoughts and understanding of the value and interdependence of each of the major disciplines and, by so doing, brings a down-to-earth touch to the big questions that each approach raises.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"His autobiography , From Physicist to Priest, is as as charming and humble as the man himself."

John Habgood, Times Literary Supplement
