This paper serves as my initial inquiry into the issues concerning the discussion between science and religion. The scope and complexity of this topic, at times baffling, defies the simplicity of categorizing issues into an overview. I am instead presenting a perspective on the present situation. It is a description of a venue in which the systemic theologian must ace, attempting to reinterpret God's role in "His" creation. This description provides a platform from which to view the work of theologians who have been compelled to reimagine traditional religious perspectives in a world that embraces the views of science.
