Assembling Faith and Science: an examination of the dynamics relationship between faith and science in our world today. Father Michael J.

He cites the works of notable Church theologians and the ways in which they have come to understand the relationship of faith and science, and calls us to examine how we as Catholics view this relationship at work in our own lives.
