Rev. Christopher Knight, Science and the Christian Faith: A Guide for the Perplexed

How do we understand and articulate our Christian faith in the age of science? Are the two in conflict? Fr Christopher Knight - a theologian who also holds a doctorate in astrophysics - is well-equipped to guide us through these questions. He argues that not only is there no conflict between faith and science, but our contemporary scientific worldview can be deepened and refined by engagement with the riches of the ancient Orthodox tradition.
