Lunch will be provided from 12:30 in the Healey Room, Westminster College, Cambridge.

Abstract In contrast to common practice, which separates science and theology, this talk maps out possible fruitful interactions between science and theology. In particular, it asks how theologians and faith communities (in particular the Christian churches) can benefit from science – and what scientists can learn from theology for their professional work. Such an integrated view enables believers to adopt a positive stance towards scientific progress. Against the mainstream, I will also argue that there is room to consciously take advantage of theological resources in scientific practice. Although this seminar mainly uses creation as the lens through which to address these questions, it also hints at contributions which the concept of sin offers.

This talk is part of the Faraday Institute for Science and Religion series.
