On being a scientist and a Christian

Recently I read this article. It is a brief survey on the relationship between science and the Christian faith in history. In it you will find quotes from Augustine (354-430) and Roger Bacon (c. 1214–1294) on the implication of Christian faith on science and the practice of it. It also presents an analysis on the downturn in recent centuries which has brought about the (seeming) tension between science and the Christian faith.

I enjoyed reading the article. It is a very brief survey indeed, but I believe it will stir the reader’s interest to know more about the history of science and its relationship with Christian faith.
