Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
February 2–3

If one were to peruse recent theological collections on the doctrine of creation, two things become readily apparent: First, the breadth of sources is conspicuously thin. Second, of what resources are available, many are a response to intellectual challenges pressed upon traditional modes of thought by the advancement of modern science. The modern doctrine of creation has too often vacillated between a complete accommodation to the received standards of modern science on the one hand, or a rejection of the findings of science as having any bearing on the claims of theology on the other. In this conference, our nine speakers will explore how the diverse concerns and questions raised by modern science appear within a range of theologians, from Hodge and Schleiermacher to von Balthasar and T. F. Torrance.

Seating is limited and registration is required.
Registration opens November 1st.
