Can science and religion coexist? Should Christians be afraid of Darwin or scientists afraid of Christ? We will tackle these and other provocative questions in a webinar with two dynamic professors who are currently fellows at the Center of Theological Inquiry in Princeton.

Don’t miss this intriguing presentation!

Part 1: What is Theology & What is Evolution—with an eye towards clarifying misconceptions and enhancing thoughtful reflection.
Part 2: Why are some Christians afraid of Darwin and why are some scientists afraid of Christ?
Part 3: How can we get it right? A discussion on human nature and the interface between faith, knowledge, and the quest for understanding.
