Test of Faith is an innovative new resource designed for use by small groups wishing to explore big issues raised by science for both faith and ethics. It introduces a wide range of hot topics including:Are science and Christianity in conflict?Has the Big Bang pushed God out of the universe?What does 'creation' mean?Is evolution compatible with religious faith?Is cloning ethical?Are humans no more than biological machines?Test of Faith is designed to enable non-specialists to join the discussion. It allows small groups to unpack these issues, and discuss them at a level and pace that suits the group. It is flexible so that users can choose the topics that they want to cover, and encourages open discussion of a range of views.All you need to run a short course is a copy of the Test of Faith DVD and a Study Guide for each member of the group, and a Leader's Guide. The Leader's Guide provides full session notes and all the content of the Study Guide plus suggested responses to questions, critical background information, and opportunities for taking these issues further. The 'Spiritual Journeys with Scientists' book is a collection of edited interviews with ten of the scientists involved in Test of Faith: their life stories and their reflections on science and faith, and is ideal background reading for group members.
