About the 'Test of FAITH' project

There is a huge need for accessible materials on science and Christianity. With The Faraday Institute starting up at the beginning of 2006, this was the ideal opportunity to fill the gap.

After some initial research and development of trial materials by Ruth Bancewicz, a grant proposal was submitted to the John Templeton Foundation. This resulted in some pilot funding in February 2007, and Contrapositive came on the team to work up a proposal for the film.

In October 2007 the project really kicked off, supported by a grant from the Templeton Foundation, and filming and writing started. Research Assistant James Crocker joined in 2008, and the rest is history.

The Test of FAITH DVD, book and course materials are now available in a number of countries, with supporting materials online. Church service, youth, school, and homeschool resources are also available.

For more information about the aims and ethos of this project, see background information (pdf).
