Excerpt from Immanence and Christian Thought: Implications and Suggestions

This popular distinction involves a false antithesis 106 The doctrine of immanence renders these exclusive categories untenable 106 The assumption of the undivmeness of the natural and the unnaturalness of the Divine responsible for the antagonism between science and religion 107 Immanence is not the eclipse of the Supernatural, but its transfiguration Nature is not the All 109 Spiritual, ' because it denotes a causative, teleological, personal conception, is a wiser term for indicating the Divine transcendence of sensible experience of the material order 112 By the acceptance of the idea of immanence the natural implies knowledge of orderly antecedents and sequents, whilst the supernatural' involves knowledge of their meaning and purpose; ulti mately they are complementary, not antithetical.
