Great Minds Explore Christianity In An Age Of Science.

Can you believe in God in an age when science is arguably the dominant form of knowledge that people trust? Is there any way that you can hold together a scientific worldview and one that includes belief in a supernatural reality?

Recently this debate has been reignited by a new wave of sceptical writers, some of them eminent scientists. Insisting that rational thought has no room for religious belief, these modern sceptics argue that science holds all the keys to progress, meaning and understanding. Religion, they say, is a force for evil, and a primitive superstition that should be rejected.

Are they right? The Centre For Public Christianity has gathered a host of prominent scientists, historians, and philosophers to consider the place of faith in an age of science.
