Forum on Science, Technology and Renewal
Science and the Spirit
June 2007 - Regent University, Virginia Beach Campus
What does Christian faith have to do with modern science? How does the worldview of Christian renewal fit, if at all, with a contemporary scientific worldview? What is the relationship between renewal theology and the religion-and-science dialogue?
The Regent University School of Divinity’s Ph.D. program in Renewal Studies announces its first forum on renewal and science. With funding provided by a grant from the John Templeton Foundation , a multi-disciplinary team of researchers has been brought together to explore the questions at the intersection of renewal Christianity and science. In conjunction with this research initiative , three public lectures will provide an opportunity for these scholars to interact more broadly with the Regent, Hampton Roads, and wider southeastern area communities on these issues.
