This webinar is currently filled. Please send an email after April 17th to receive a link to view it.


Overview

Darwin Banner w/BorderCan 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.

Registration has so far been available only to groups. Our main objective has been to gather people in their local faith or academic communities to discuss these important issues. However, in response to enthusiastic inquiries, Princeton Seminary is opening this opportunity to individuals. If you want to join the discussion, Princeton Seminary will provide you with free access to this webinar.

Don't miss this intriguing presentation!

Agenda

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?
