Saint John’s University School of Theology and Seminary
Tactically, the proposed program is aimed at our theological faculty, with emphasis on scientific cosmology, anthropology, and technological innovation. Participating faculty will revisit course and program goals to engage students in the interplay between scientific discoveries and the voice of the Judeo‐Christian tradition. We expect the science‐theology emphasis will enlarge the understanding of both the natural world and the faith response to it. For the participating faculty the augmented perspective, as informed and tempered in the classroom, will persist over time and, ultimately, permeate the school. Likewise, there will be a ripple effect as the students radiate the broader perspective, both in their own lives, and to those whom they serve. As teachers in high schools, religious education programs, and undergraduate colleges, our graduates can have a profound, lasting impact.
