Science, Theology, and Ministry

This course, taught by Russell Haitch at Bethany Theological Seminary, deals with how Christians can see God in a scientific world. Science and theology both seek to understand reality, but they take different tacks, which can lead to feelings of conflict at places of intersection or a chasm of non-interaction, whereby people struggle to fit together the Sunday world of faith with the Monday world of science and technology. The course considers the themes of human life, death, and resurrection from the standpoint of both Christian theology and empirical science, with a view to Christian ministry and ponder proposals for transforming conflict.
