Ian Barbour was one of the world pioneers in the integration of science and religion.

His books and articles have helped to expand the field of theology not only for Christianity but also for other faiths. A physicist and former chair of the religion department, Barbour was Winifred and Atherton Bean Professor Emeritus of Science, Technology and Society at Carleton College.
