Ruth Bancewicz

Ruth Bancewicz is a research associate at the Faraday Institute for Science and Religion, working on the positive interaction between science and faith, and the 'Test of FAITH' resources project. After reading Genetics at Aberdeen University, she completed a PhD at Edinburgh University, based at the MRC Human Genetics Unit, working on gene-environment interactions during verterbrate development. She spent two years as a part-time postdoctoral researcher at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Cell Biology, Edinburgh University, while also working as the Development Officer for Christians in Science - a post she held for three years, before moving full-time to the Faraday Institute to develop the 'Test of FAITH' resources, the first of which were launched in 2009.

Faraday Institute For Science And Religion

[The Faraday Institute for Science and Religion is an academic research enterprise based at St Edmund's College, Cambridge. The Institute has four main activities:

1.Scholarly research and publication on science and religion, including the organisation of invited groups of experts to write joint publications.
2.To provide short-term courses in science and religion.
3.To organise seminars and lectures on science and religion.
4.To provide accurate information on science and religion for the international media and wider public.

The Faraday Institute has a Christian ethos, but encourages engagement with a wide diversity of opinions concerning interactions between science and religion, without engaging in advocacy. It aims to provide accurate information in order to facilitate informed debate.

The Faraday Institute derives its name from Michael Faraday (1791-1867), one of Britain's best-known scientists, who saw his faith as integral to his scientific research.]

Customer Reviews For "Test of Faith"

Great science/faith dialogue
5 stars By Gareth, 06 Nov 2009
If you're interested in really pursuing the issues facing current science, and wanting to do it with theological and intellectual integrity, this DVD is a great resource. The driving force behind it is the UK-based Faraday Institute for Science and Religion, drawing upon eminent thinkers such as Alister McGrath, Francis Collins and John Polkinghorne. The DVD is not afraid to pose the toughest questions of its interviewees, who honestly and thoughtfully engage. Whether you are already well acquainted with the science/faith interface, or if you're still wondering whether they can even co-exist, this DVD will be a blessing to all.
