Where is Thomas Aquinas when you need him?  It’s amazing how many of the challenges we face today are just the same old challenges we humans find ourselves struggling with over and over again.  Not only within our individual lives, but throughout our human history as a whole.

What is the relationship between faith and science?  How does the Bible stack up against the scientific method?  How does a Christian reconcile scientific evidence that seems to contradict their faith?  Is our scientific truth different from our religious truth?
