Transcript published:

As we approach the Great Lenten period, Fr Thomas teaches us about the purpose of Lent and how to enter into it, restoring those things which have fallen away in our spiritual life.

Transcript published:

In this episode on the Darwinian Revolution and the relationship between natural science and Christian theology, Fr. Thomas Hopko reflects on the issue of death.

Continuing now in our reflections on the relationship between science and theology, Christian theology—and, as you know, I prefer to say “natural science and Christian theology” rather than “science and religion” because I do believe that “religion” is too vague and too general a term to be used, although it’s used all the time. There’s plenty of writings about science and religion, but I still like to hold forth…
