Alongside my main interests in medical ethics, advancing technology and issues of science and faith, I also teach and write about the historic Christian faith. In particular, I try to build a conceptual bridge between the technological and ethical issues of the modern world and the world of the orthodox Christian faith.
Along with my son, the journalist Tim Wyatt, I also run a podcast called Matters of Life and Death, which seeks to help Christians navigate and respond to issues in healthcare, ethics, science, technology and more. Find out more and listen to the latest episodes here.
You can find talks, sermons and other resources focused on the Christian faith that I have uploaded below:
