Description

This is a Interface Lecture Series talk given during the fall of 2018.

nThis major lecture looks at the relation of two of the most important elements of today's culture - science and religion. Professor McGrath, one of the world's leading authorities in the field, speaks of his own changing attitude towards science and religious faith, as he moved from atheism to Christianity. The lecture focuses on two main ways of understanding the relation of science and religious faith. The first is the 'conflict' or 'warfare' model, adopted by Richard Dawkins; the second is an 'enrichment' model, adopted by McGrath himself which holds that, when seen in the right way, the natural sciences and religious faith can complement each other, and lead to a richer and deeper vision of life.
