Does Science Undermine Faith?

A Little Book Of Guidance

Roger Trigg

Many people assume that science ‘disproves’ the idea of God, and that we no longer need faith in order to understand the world or why we are in it.

Roger Trigg examines these assumptions and considers whether recent developments in science may in fact support religious faith. He goes on to consider the increasing scientific evidence for the inherent orderliness and comprehensibility of the universe, which leads him to ask an even more radical question: Might there be aspects of religious belief that can help to support our science?
