Scripture & Science

How can Scripture help us to navigate science? How can science help to enrich our faith?

In this section we explore the dynamic relationship between Scripture and science as we consider the planet and its purpose.

Scripture and science touch on big questions: why there is something rather than nothing, how the universe came about, how we came to be here, what it means to be human, and where our species is headed. While some regard science and faith as mutually exclusive, this series by Michael Pfundner explores how they can offer complementary paths towards the truth.

Michael is Publishing Support Manager for Bible Society and a freelance writer.
