About: This paper proposes an approach to conceptualizing and contributing to the harmony of science and religion. In an effort to find points of unity that can serve as a basis upon which to advance the discourse on the subject, it begins by considering some of the legitimate concerns many thinkers have with religion and correlating them with the teachings of the Bahá’í Faith. With these correlations in mind, it then describes how it may be fruitful to think about both science and religion as viable sources of knowledge in their own right. Based on these descriptions, the balance of the paper focuses on three ways in which science and religion can be understood to complement each other: how they supplement each other, how they correspond to each other, and how they cultivate each other. Within this framework, a series of propositions are adduced for further inquiry.
