The doctrine of creation and the science of nature

This lecture explores how the Christian understanding of creation has influenced the development of modern science, and opens up the question of how best to understand the relationship between modern science and the Christian understanding of reality. Several approaches will be explored, showing how we can have a constructive dialogue between faith and science, leading to an enrichment of both.

This lecture was given at Developing a Christian Mind: Christianity and the Life of the Mind, Ship Street Centre, Jesus College, University of Oxford, 30 Jan 2016
