ISCAST is a network of people, from students to distinguished academics, exploring the interface of the sciences, technology, and Christianity. We are convinced that Christian faith has much to say in engagement with the sciences, and we are concerned that so many people, both outside and some within the Christian church, think that there is a destructive conflict between faith and science.

The rapid development of science and technology has left many people bewildered, leading some to accept a naturalistic, ‘science-only’ mindset, while others retreat to a fundamentalism that rejects much of mainstream science.

With Christians throughout history, ISCAST stands for another way: a dynamic dialogue that critically engages with both Christian faith and the sciences, allowing each to contribute to our understanding of the other. For over 30 years ISCAST (formally, the Institute for the Study of Christianity in an Age of Science and Technology) has promoted the harmony between faith and the sciences.

ISCAST runs conferences and public lectures, speaks in schools, churches and theological colleges, and provides resources to promote a healthy relationship between the sciences and Christian faith. You can sign up for news using the "subscribe" link on this page, or you might like to contact us through the contact menu item.

To invite a speaker to your school or church or other group, please contact ISCAST Executive Director, Chris Mulherin directly.
