The Science of Faith and the Faith of Science
Worship includes the use of our minds. A Christian cosmology maintains that the laws of nature are only laws because they are God's ordinary way of working. There is no conflict inherent between science and religion.
Can Science Determine Human Values?
Joe Boot discusses whether the methods of science can provide values for humanity and offers a critique of Sam Harris.
The Revelation of God in Creation
The creative act of God recorded in Genesis lays out the literal meaning for the rest of the Bible. In the Christian worldview, creation and redemption stand in an absolute historical continuum together. A proper understanding of God's revelation in creation requires a proper understanding of his Word which interprets the world.

Evolution is a worldview which affects how we think about every area: pyschology, human morality, history and literature. Joe Boot discusses how the popular form of this idea arose and how it stands at odds with a biblical understanding of the world.
