Chapter Summary

The purpose of this chapter is to offer a brief assessment of the &t;divine action project&t;. Science can purify religion from error and superstition; religion can purify science from idolatry and false absolutes. One of the most significant event was the series of five international and ecumenical research conferences co-sponsored by the Vatican Observatory (VO) and Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences (CTNS). A topic in philosophical theology to thematize the entire series of conferences and to inspire interdisciplinary discussion by both scientists and theologians was searched for. Many scholars referred to God in the language of generic monotheism. Most scholars like Russell, Stoeger, Tracy seemed to presuppose that causal efficacy lies within nature as a gift of God and the laws that are formulated are descriptions of such efficacy in nature. Much of contemporary Catholic theology has been influenced by a recovery of Thomistic views of divine action.
