About-

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.

This Leader's Guide accompanies the Test of FAITH DVD, and provides all the content of the Study Guide plus suggested responses to questions, critical background information, and opportunities for taking these issues further.

Endorsements & Reviews-

With terrific production values, impeccably qualified experts, and a clear-eyed focus on the most important questions, this is an invaluable resource for thinking about science and faith.
--Andy CrouchSenior Editor, Christianity Today International

The relationship between science and Christian faith is one of the most critical questions for the church, the academy, and the culture at large. Test of Faith provides a rare and extraordinary opportunity to explore this challenging issue with some of the world's leading scientists.
--Dan Cho Executive Director, The Veritas Forum

I feel more confident now with questions and exploration in
science and faith.
--Participant

Students, professors and all of us, bombarded by arguments that science and Christianity are incompatible, need help to maintain and defend our faith. I have not seen anything as good as the Test of Faith materials in encouraging and equipping us for this.  And they challenge sceptics to acknowledge that the latest science is not only compatible with but only really makes sense in the context of Biblical Christian thought.
--Dr Terry Morrison Director Emeritus, Faculty Ministry, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship USA

I found it hugely encouraging to see Christian scientists who are passionate about their faith.
--Participant

Provides a plethora of discussion angles, especially for classroom and small group settings, on a range of science-faith topics that sorely need open, less contentious Christian dialog.
--Dr Daniel L. Burden Associate Professor, Chemistry Department, Wheaton College

The featured scientists and theologians in Test of Faith provide a clear and understandable account of how scientific understanding complements and supports our Christian faith.
--Dr Randall D. Isaac Executive Director, American Scientific Affiliation

Test of Faith is a 'must' for any serious student of the interdependence of real science and real Christian faith. It is a pithy compilation of the critical issues in this important missional area by some of the world's leading authorities in the field on both sides of the Atlantic, presented in an accessible and professional manner. An excellent discussion tool for small groups--Dr W. Ross Hastings Associate Professor, Mission Studies, Regent College, Vancouver
