Science and the God of Abraham


Believers in the God of Abraham — the theistic Creator-God of the Jewish, Christian, and Islamic tradition — face the challenge of integrating their faith with a scientific understanding of the universe. While critics of a robust relationship between Abrahamic religion and modern science, especially the recent New Atheists, claim that theism and science are in tension if not outright conflict, a vast body of research in the history of science and contemporary treatments of science and religion support the possibility of faith-science complementarity. Dimensions of this research include the Christian roots of modern science and the coherence of Christian doctrine with recent scientific discoveries in physics, cosmology, and biology. Conferences addresses this general topic include the popular Physics and the God of Abraham series and the occasional Biology and the God of Abraham series.
