 Recent popular debates over the relationship between science and religion have too often degenerated into shouted polemics between religious fundamentalists and new atheists. Yet many of the really important historical, philosophical and theological questions call for more careful attention.

This conversation seeks to contribute to this goal, by exploring a range of questions, in particular:

  • To what extent does modern science pose a challenge to belief in the existence of God?
  • What does it mean to have ‘faith’ in an age of science?
  • Can science satisfactorily address the ultimate questions of human existence, which have   traditionally remained within the domain of religion?
  • Is religion of any use to science? Conversely, is science of any use to religion?
