Christian Perspectives on Science and Technology

The ISCAST Online Journal, Christian Perspectives on Science and Technology (CPOSAT), online from March 2006, is a forum for those exploring the interaction between science, technology and the Christian faith. The intended readers are Christians interested in science and technology as well as scientists or technologists interested in the Christian faith. It is likely that readers will have a university degree or its equivalent but we do not assume that they will have specialised knowledge of a branch of science or theology.

The opinions expressed in the papers are not necessarily those of the Editorial Team or of the ISCAST Board.
