Modern Science and Christian Belief Should Be at Peace
Peter H Barry, October 2005

In this paper, I will give an overview/review of two recent books: Coming to peace with science: bridging the worlds between faith and biology by Darrell R. Falk and Random Designer; created from chaos to connect with the Creator by Richard G. Colling.  In addition I will include something of my own background and my thoughts on the science-faith issues raised by these two books.

This paper is an expanded and modified version of a talk given at an ISCAST meeting in the School of Physics at the University of NSW on Monday August 29th 2005.

Key words
