The work of Arthur Peacocke may be considered to be a good example of
the effort to link the findings and theories of new cosmology to the world of
theology and religious thinking in a consistent and credible way. Highlights
of Peacocke's theology pertaining to this venture are discussed. Smile of
the issues that are dealt with include his anti-reductionist approach, his
critical realist stand, and his use of metaphor. Attention is also given to
God's interaction with the world, the interaction of law and chance, God's
self-limited omnipotence and omniscience, God and tinle, the suffering of
creation and kenosis. The article concludes with some critical questions
posed to Peacocke.
