The general title of our discussions indicates that we are interested in the search for a unifying discipline or point of view which may bridge or fuse what Carl Henry calls. "the cleavage between science and religion . . . one of the defacing characteristics of our culture." This author ably states the case when he says, "Evangelical theology, if it is to make a major contribution to synthesis, must propound a Christian philosophy of science tracing the implications of the sovereignty of God for all branches of science." It is the purpose of this presentation to call attention to the fact that such attempts, conscious or subconscious, have been made by Christian thinkers of all ages. but that only recently has the problem been seriously appreciated and only recently have deliberate attempts been made to formulate such a philosophy.
