Science and Faith in Harmony: Creation, Science and The Saint John’s Bible

Cathedral of the IncarnationIn this talk, research astrophysicist Dr. Anton M. Koekemoer, will draw some interesting analogies between the discoveries of the scientific advancements that human kind has made in astronomy and how it aligns with the faith of Christianity.

He also presents the Hubble images that were used in the beautiful illustrations in The Saint John’s Bible.
