Surprised by Science

Colin Russell began his scientific career by experimenting with electronics and home-made chemistry sets in a way that would make the hair of today's health and safety officer stand on end. Rebelling against church, he discovered Christian faith at a 'Crusader' class. Colin pursued a career in chemistry, before side-stepping into the Open University to run their new history of science department. It was in this post that he was able to challenge the idea that science and religion have always been in conflict.
