Ian G. Barbour was a physicist, theologian, author, and winner of the 1999
Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion. He was also the Winifred and Atherton
Bean Professor Emeritus of Science, Technology and Society at Carleton College
in Northfield, Minnesota. As a well-known pioneer in the growing field of
Science and Religion, Dr. Barbour established his reputation as an
interdisciplinary scholar by way of his influential book, Issues In Science
And Religion, first published in 1965. He authored many additional books
and articles. For example, his book Myths, Models And Paradigms has
served as a useful tool for those persons who wish to study the methodologies
and approaches of scientists and scholars of religion. As a follow-up to
delivering his Gifford Lectures (1989-91), Dr. Barbour also published Religion
In An Age Of Science and Ethics In An Age Of Technology. In recent
years, his book entitled Religion And Science: Historical And Contemporary
Issues has often been used as a course textbook.
