Resources

Here are some of our favourite resources exploring science-religion interactions or areas of science or religious faith about which we’re often asked. They each explore their topic in a way which either actively links science and religious faith or prepares the way for further questions, and always with a focus on accuracy and respect.

In line with our approach, which has some emphasis on the interactions of science and the Christian faith, several of our featured resources explore ideas from Christianity or ideas present within a Christian context. Others take a broader or different perspective. We have included notes in each description to help you consider which resources might be of help or interest to you.

Resources labelled with a ‘Faraday Teens’ logo have been produced by our team in collaboration with a range of authors, illustrators and publishers.
