Intellectuals Divorcing God from the Real World: Confronting the Science-Faith Divide


Many modern intellectuals try to separate God from nature by claiming that science and faith—or facts and values—belong to different realms. After offering some contemporary examples of this, Dr. Weikart briefly examines the intellectual history of secularisation with special attention to the way that it has contributed to developing the fact-value and science-faith dichotomies. He examines how these ideas are influencing the academy today and then closes with thoughts about how Christians can engage this issue.
