How do we understand and articulate our Christian faith in the age of science? Are the two in conflict? Fr Christopher Knight - a theologian who also holds a doctorate in astrophysics - is well-equipped to guide us through these questions. He argues that not only is there no conflict between faith and science, but our contemporary scientific worldview can be deepened and refined by engagement with the riches of the ancient Orthodox tradition.

 

About The Author: Christopher C. Knight holds a Ph.D. in astrophysics and serves as a priest of the Orthodox Church. He is a Senior Research Associate of the Institute for Orthodox Christian Studies in Cambridge, England.

    Science and the Christian Faith

    Posted by Paul Gavrilyuk, PhD on 13th Jan 2021

    It is important for Orthodox theologians and scientists to join other Christian thinkers in a constructive dialogue between science and religion. Christopher Knight approaches this dialogue from a distinctly Orthodox Christian perspective by retrieving the patristic concept of nous for the contemporary theology of nature. Emphasizing God’s immanence in creation, he proposes to understand miracles as divine signs of the true nature of the cosmos to be fully restored at the eschaton. This is a powerful and captivating vision.

    Christopher Knight is the world's leading scholar on the relationship between contemporary science and Orthodox theology. A must-have for the Orthodox, this book also provides key new perspectives for all Christians wrestling with scientific challenges to faith. Knight brilliantly engages both contemporary science and core Orthodox commitments to articulate insightful ways forward for those perplexed within an age of science.
