Chapter three explores the history of the RSCF during the same period. Led by a zoologist named Oliver R. Barclay and comprised of a small number of young Cambridge scientists, the group sought to demonstrate to the scientific community the compatibility of orthodox theology and modern science. The RSCF lacked the fundamentalist heritage of its American counterpart, but quickly discovered the challenges of affirming both biblical and scientific views of the world.Only after a young brain scientist named Donald M. MacKay joined the group in 1948 did the RSCF find its message of the complementary relationship between science and Christianity. Soon thereafter, conservative British voices began challenging the RSCF’s willingness to allow science to help interpret Scripture. By the 1960s, the RSCF discovered that it too faced resistance to an evolutionary view of creation.
