George Marsden Workshop: Faith & Rationality

Thursday, July 13, 2017: 1:30 – 4:00 PM
Trinity Western University (Precise location will be given to registrants)

MarsdenGeorge Marsden (Professor Emeritus, University of Notre Dame) has taught history at Calvin College, Duke University Divinity School, and the University of Notre Dame. His books include Fundamentalism and American Culture, The Soul of the American University, The Outrageous Idea of Christian Scholarship, Jonathan Edwards: A Life, and C.S. Lewis’s Mere Christianity: A Biography. (source)

This July, we will host a workshop in Langley, BC with George on the relationship of Christian faith to modern rationality geared to pastors, students, academics, and other interested parties. What differences should Christian perspectives make in thinking about and relating to the contemporary world and its intellectual assumptions? How do we strike a balance between biblical claims and the legitimate claims of modern science? For instance, does faith in creation entail developing young earth “creation science?” Why do so many Christians think it does?
