Is God a delusion? Are science and Christian faith incompatible? Ten scientists tell their stories.
Test of Faith is an innovative new resource designed for use by small groups wishing to explore big issues raised by science for both faith and ethics. It introduces a wide range of hot topics including:
* Are science and Christianity in conflict?
* Has the Big Bang pushed God out of the universe?
* Is evolution compatible with religious faith?
* Is cloning ethical?
* Are humans no more than biological machines?
Contributors include: Dr Francis Collins, Professor Alister McGrath, Dr Ard Louis, Dr Jennifer Wiseman, Professor Bill Newsome, Rev Dr John Polkinghorn, Rev Dr Alasdair Coles, Dr Deborah B. Haarsma, Professor Rosalind Picard, Professor John Bryant.
Test of Faith is designed to enable non-specialists to join the discussion. It allows small groups to unpack these issues, and discuss them at a level and pace that suits the group. It is flexible so that users can choose the topics that they want to cover.
This Leader's Guide accompanies the Test of Faith DVD, and provides all the content of the Study Guide plus suggested responses to questions, critical background information, and opportunities for taking these issues further.
