One of the greatest challenges for pedagogy in the field of science and religion is taking the insights of scholarly activity, whether gained through philosophy, theology or empirical studies, and applying them to the reality of the classroom. In this final section, we bring together a collection of chapters that apply these universal insights to particular situations, whether educational, cultural or national settings. Each author strives to step beyond simple ‘chalk and talk’ and seeks to bring the issues of science and religion to life whilst recognising that this endeavour is unlikely to receive much space in any curriculum.
