Series: On Creating the Cosmos, by Ted Peters (3 entries)

Last year I introduced readers to one of the leading voices about Christianity and science, John Polkinghorne. I also helped BioLogos bring in another leading voice, Robert Russell.

Origins News Roundup for Friday, February 28, 2014

Ever wonder what a huge frozen lake looks like from space? Or what the best blunders in science history have been? Closer to home (for us anyway), have you contemplated whether America’s views on evolution will ever change?

Trying all Things: The Importance of Experience in Scriptural Interpretation

“All of a sudden, it was possible to grant a text deep authority (a ‘high view of scripture’ we say) while discounting neither our own experience, nor the historical experience of those writing, compiling, editing that same text.

Having won an ECF grant, Cara Wall-Scheffler, biological anthropologist at Seattle Pacific University, and I are now planning to host a group of 18 young Christian paleobiologists for a week-long seminar during late June, 2014.
