The Making of a Scientific Theologian
Lunchtime Lecture at Regent College on September 20, 12:00-1:00 pm
What does the interface of theology and science look like in the course of a human life? And how can such an academic pursuit coincide with the vocation of a Christian minister? In this lunchtime lecture and discussion, Professor McGrath will lead us in reflecting on the personal dimensions of doing “scientific theology,” with reference to the Scottish theologian Thomas F. Torrance. Torrance carried out a vigorous engagement between Trinitarian theology and the natural sciences, while also following the call to church leadership with an ecumenical and international scope. McGrath is an expert guide to his legacy, having written the definitive intellectual biography as well as his own multi-volume A Scientific Theology, which opens with a dedication to Torrance.
This public event is free of charge.
