Theology Event: The Cosmos and the Classroom: Exploring Faith, Science and God – Summer Hill

In Gunning for God, John Lennox says, ‘The Bible teaches that creation is contingent; that is, God as Creator is free to make the world as and how he likes. Thus, in order to find out what the universe is like and how it works, we have to go and look’.

In this Agora event, Associate Professor Frank Stootman will explore the importance of science as a discipline to engender wonder in the universe that God has created and how it can affirm faith rather than deny it.
