White Horse Inn: Conversational Theology

Is Christianity Opposed to Science?

Though faith and science are often pitted against each other, this wasn’t always the case. In fact, in the Middle Ages, theology was known as “the queen of the sciences.” So, what’s changed? White Horse Inn hosts Michael Horton, Justin Holcomb, and Bob Hiller are kicking off a new series examining the relationship between faith and science. In this episode, they consider the historical relationship between these disciplines, examining what has caused growing skepticism towards the sciences among Christians.


“Boyle established an institution based on the independence of science from religious fanaticism. And he did that because of his religious convictions.”

— Michael Horton
