Science and Faith

Theology was once called the Queen of the Sciences but it is science in the more familiar sense of the word which seems to be given much greater authority in our present day culture.  So what is it like today to hold together a passion for science with a living Christian faith?  In this edition of franciscan three physicists and a clinical psychologist look from their very different perspectives at the questions that interest them in the interaction between science and faith, and share something of their enthusiasm for both.
