Science and Faith in a Secular Society (with J.P. Moreland)

Increasingly, people believe that the only things that count for real knowledge are those that can be scientifically verified. Scott and Sean interview Talbot philosopher JP Moreland about his new book, Scientism and Secularism: Learning to Respond to a Dangerous Ideology. Dr. Moreland will connect faith and science in a way consistent with a Christian worldview. Show notes, including a full transcript, are available at: biola.edu/thinkbiblically
