    The so-called conflict thesis arguing that there is a fundamental conflict between science and faith is an old one that has been debunked by philosophers and historians. But recently the 'New Atheism' has brought the thesis back to life.

    This chapter is written to help pastors and teachers understand the basic issues so they can help congregations and students to think clearly about the issues.
