Administrative history

ISCAST's mission is to develop and advocate a Christian perspective in the science-religion dialogue within the science community, the Christian community and society generally in the Australasian and international communities. It was formed in 1987 by Protestant evangelicals working in the physical sciences, but has expanded to include Catholics and the fields of social, political and ecological sciences.
