The March 2016 issue of Perspectives on Science and Christian Faith, the peer-reviewed academic journal of the ASA and CSCA, is now available for members. As is often the case, there are a good number of Canadian contributions to this issue, which we highlight below. If you are not yet a member of CSCA, the journal may be available in an academic library near you.
CSCA Past President and PSCF Editor James C. Peterson opens the issue with “The Science and Theology of Creation and Sin,” a brief editorial introducing the theme of this issue.
Denis O. Lamoureux is associate professor of science and religion at St. Joseph’s College in the University of Alberta. He contributes “Beyond the Cosmic Fall and Natural Evil” to this issue, in which he questions whether the idea of a “cosmic fall” is truly taught by Scripture. Additionally, Lamoureux will be conducting a workshop to be offered just before the ASA Annual Meeting on Friday, July 22, entitled “Five Online Sunday School Lessons on Science and Religion.”
Gerda Kits, Assistant Professor of Economics at The King’s University in Edmonton, writes a review of Paul F. Seinberg’s book, Who Rules the Earth?: How Social Rules Shape Our Planet and Our Lives.
Charles E. Chaffey, Professor Emeritus, Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry, University of Toronto, reviews Creation in Crisis: Science, Ethics, Theology by Joshtrom Isaac Kureethadam.
August H. Konkel, Professor of Old Testament, McMaster Divinity College, Hamilton, writes a review of The Lost World of Adam and Eve: Genesis 2–3 and the Human Origins Debate by John H. Walton.
