Richard J. Pendergast

Richard J. Pendergast (1927-2012) was a Jesuit priest, a physicist, philosopher and theologian, who devoted his life to seeking the integration of science and divine revelation. He worked to update the Christian synthesis of St. Thomas Aquinas, based on a static worldview, to reflect evolution, and the view of cosmic reality as dynamic process. A scholar of first rank whose research appeared in peer-reviewed professional journals, he yet preferred pastoral ministry to academic life. His is the work of a seminal thinker that presents a bold Christian vision, a living universe of meaning and hope.
