The Arthur C. Custance Centre

For Science and Christianity

The Arthur C. Custance Centre for Science and Christianity explores the relationship between Science and Scripture while remaining faithful to the established facts of Science and the revealed truths of Scripture. We are scientifically sound and biblically based.

We believe that the Bible conveys facts that are fully supported by science. Modern biology supports the special creation of kinds, and provides the physiological mechanism for the virgin birth of Christ and the Incarnation. Modern physics and forensics show that the image on the Shroud of Turin provides physical evidence for the resurrection of Jesus, and insights into the physical consequences of the fall of a real Adam and Eve.

This web site contains the works of Arthur Custance (1910-1985) who wrote extensively on the links between academic knowledge and the tenets of Christianity. These works have influenced Christians world-wide, and this centre continues to promote his vision to bring together the established facts of Science and the revealed truths of Scripture.

Additional resources are also available, and we invite students of all ages to browse through the many pages on this site. Feel free to direct any questions to us at [email protected].
