Here is a December 2022 supplement to the 2015 book—The Big Bang and God: An Astro-Theology wherein an astronomer and a theologian offer a study of interdisciplinary convergences with natural theology both in the scientific researches of Sir Fred Hoyle and in the philosophical researches of Charles Hartshorne and Alfred North Whitehead, thereby illustrating a constructive postmodern trend (New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2015) by Theodore Walker Jr. and Chandra Wickramasinghe, with editing and co-authoring by Alexander Vishio.

Biology, astronomy, astrobiology, cosmology, and theology converge when the word “God” refers to “that than which none greater can conceived” (St. Anselm), and therefore to “the one all-inclusive whole of reality,” the “universal individual” (Schubert Ogden, Charles Hartshorne), the all-inclusive and eternally creative Creator.

Accordingly, “Convergence to God” was the penultimate title of The Big Bang and God: An Astro-Theology … (2015) and the ultimate title of the concluding chapter in Evolution from Space: A Theory of Cosmic Creationism(1981) by Sir Fred Hoyle and Chandra Wickramasinghe.

This supplement includes the original Preface, the original Summary Preview, plus eight new Abstracts abstracted from each of the original eight chapters, and a new selected Bibliography.
