Issue 85


It is difficult to find a language in which faith and science can speak to each other. For some, faith and science are competing systems of thought, and an intellectually responsible person must make a choice between them, especially when it comes to questions about the origins and development of life. For others, faith and science each have a place, but can have nothing to say to each other because they operate in entirely separate spheres.

It is our hope that art, with its capacity for metaphor, can translate between these schools. With that in mind, we decided to devote most of an issue of Image to fiction, poetry, essays, and art that explore the intersection between faith and science, with special attention to evolution.
