In a series of short videos, many of which comprise interviews with leading scientists and philosophers, the Ian Ramsey Centre for Science and Religion poses a variety of questions such as “What is Life?”, “What is a Person?”, “Why is the Brain Divided?” and “Are We Naturally Religious?”
Faith and science was one of the major themes of the Anglican Communion’s 2022 Lambeth Conference.

“A more generous world is a better world.” That was one of the premises of the Science of Generosity Initiative that Christian Smith led at the University of Notre Dame.
Sylvester James Gates is not only the first African-American to hold an endowed chair of physics at a major American research university, but also a positive voice for faith and science.
Philosopher Alvin Plantinga’s 2011 book, Where the Conflict Really Lies, makes a case for the reasonableness of religious belief. As the publisher summary says, “The theme of this short book is that the conflict between science and theistic religion is actually superficial, and that at a deeper level they are in concord.”
