Faith & Culture in Dialogue

On Thursday, November 17th, Redeemer will host Dr. C. John “Jack” Collins who will give two lectures discussing the relationship of the Christian faith to science. In a world where it is commonly thought that the claims of science undermine the tenets of the Christian faith, how should Christians respond? Can we actually support scientific inquiry without sacrificing our faith? What do we do when scientific conclusions conflict with the teachings of the Bible? Are the claims of science truly objective and “provable”? These are just a few of the questions we hope to raise during these lectures.

Dr. Collins, a Professor of Old Testament at Covenant Theological Seminary (CTS) in St. Louis (and one of Pastor Gibbs’ former teachers), is well qualified to speak on these matters. Not only is Dr. Collins an expert in Old Testament scholarship, receiving his PhD from the University of Liverpool, he is also a scientist, having received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Science from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Since then, Jack has received grants from the John Templeton Foundation and the Center for Science and Culture for his work in science and faith and written extensively on the topic.

This event promises to be relevant to everyone, especially our young people. So, mark your calendars now and plan on bringing friends!
