Simon Oliver Lecture: Creation, Modernity, and Public Theology

On April 26 at 7pm, join us at CTK Cambridge for an evening with Simon Oliver, Professor of Theology and Canon Theologian at Durham, UK, as he discusses questions raised in his new book Creation: A Guide for the Perplexed. Dr. Oliver argues that shifts in the understanding of God, creation, and science that took place in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries have rendered the notion of “creation” unintelligible, and have given rise to scientism - the view that the natural sciences are the only means of accessing truth. Dr. Oliver will explore how a recovery of the doctrine of creation bears relevance for many of today’s cultural concerns.  RSVP here and email Nathan Barczi if you have any questions.
