Christianity and Science. Are They Enemies or Allies?

Register Now. You will automatically be entered to be one of the three winners of Science and the Christian Faith book by our special guest, Fr. Christopher Knight.

Join the myOCN Interactive Virtual Community with Fr. Christopher Metropulos and Fr. Christopher Knight on Thursday, 8/26 at 7pm EST. Some scientists will argue that religion is a fantasy world antithetical to scientific reality.

Some religious voices claim that science is all theories, many of them specious, and that we answer to a higher authority: the Bible- which can only be read as a literal account of astronomy, geology, zoology and history. There is no shortage of self-righteousness on either side. If you are frustrated by both sides of such arguments, this program is for you. Fr. Knight will share pearls with us from his book, Science and the Christian faith. He is a trained astrophysicist and ordained Orthodox theologian. Watch myOCN Community recorded programs anytime.

  • Fr. Christopher Knight is a Senior Research Associate of the Institute for Orthodox Christian Studies in Cambridge, England. He lives in Walsingham (a place of Christian pilgrimage since the eleventh century) where he is the parish priest of the Parish of the Holy Transfiguration. Until his retirement from secular employment, he worked as the Executive Secretary of the International Society for Science and Religion, which meant that he was in regular contact with most of the leading figures in what is sometimes called the science-theology dialogue. His initial interest in this dialogue arose, however, not from that experience but from the way in which his early education had culminated in a Ph.D. in astrophysics. (His degree in theology came later.) His most recent book - “Science and the Christian Faith: A Guide for the Perplexed” (SVS Press, 2020) - argues that there are specific Orthodox insights that provide new ways of seeing how theology and scientific theory may be seen as in harmony with each other.
