The CSCA is delighted to announce that in addition to the free, public lecture he is giving, Old Testament Scholar John Walton will be conducting a three-hour in-depth workshop earlier the same day, for a modest fee.
Science and Scripture Workshop: Approaching the Early Chapters of Genesis
July 20: 1:30 – 4:30 PM, Langley Canadian Reformed Church, 21804 52 Ave, Langley, BC.
Dr. Walton is Professor of Old Testament at Wheaton College, and has been involved in writing a series of books on interpreting Genesis from an ancient near-eastern perspective. This July, he will be giving a week-long course at Regent College. In addition to this, he is willing to do a mini-workshop for Christian academics (including seminary students) and pastors (on the afternoon Wednesday 20 July), followed by an evening public lecture at Willoughby Church in Langley at 7:30 PM on Genesis 1.
This workshop will be geared toward an informed audience (especially pastors, seminary students, and Christian academics) of those who better want to understand the scriptural/theological side of the ongoing discussion of Christianity and cosmic & human origins. Participants would be required to have read John’s book, The Lost World of Adam and Eve (IVP, 2015), and to have watched at least one of his recorded lectures [like this one at a BioLogos conference], and would have the opportunity to submit questions ahead of time.
The content of the workshop will minimally overlap with that evening’s public lecture on Gen. 1, but will go more into depth on Walton’s work in methodology for interpreting Genesis, including the following:
- surveying different approaches to science and Scripture conversation,
- surveying some of the hermeneutical issues, and
- providing a lot of conversation along the way.
