Knox Theological Seminary

Knox’s project, “Sustainable Scientific Engagement in the Educational Core of Knox Theological Seminary,” arises specifically out of its context as an Evangelical and Reformed theological seminary situated in a community that has historically endorsed young-earth creationism as the only biblical position on creation. This history continues to affect the surrounding community of churches and supporters of the seminary as well as at least some of the students who come from similar church backgrounds. This community reality creates the need for this project to advance not only the specific goal of integration of science into the core curriculum, but also the more basic development of a thoughtful and well-informed understanding of the possible ways in which theology and science might relate. The project centers around revisions of several courses and a large campus event in February 2020.
