Monotheism as an explanatory key for the rise of science

In this draft paper, ISCAST fellow, Rev. Dr Mark Worthing argues that while there are various views about what cultural and theological context was responsible for the rise of science it is monotheism more generally that is the key explanatory factor.

The article also comes with a Powerpoint presentation (in PDF form), which approximately follows the article but also has more specific comments in the last two slides directed at Christians in science and in academic research.

In December 2017 Mark Worthing presented this material at a University of Divinity research symposium.

​News flash! ISCAST conference speaker line up announced

The impressive line up of speakers and topics for ISCAST's March conference (COSAC​ 2018) ​is now on the presenters page of the COSAC website.

The speakers range from eminent Australians to New Zealanders and our special guest from the USA. They range from apologists to philosophers, from scientists and historians to theologians. But they all have one thing in common: they all long to make the good news of Jesus Christ relevant to a world that is increasingly alienated from its Christian heritage. Come to COSAC to be stimulated, to be encouraged, and to think hard about connecting faith and Aussie culture.
