"Into a wider world": Conversations between science and religion
On June 1, 1988, Pope John Paul II wrote to the director of the Vatican Observatory, "Science can purify religion from error and superstition; religion can purify science from idolatry and false absolutes. Each can draw the other into a wider world, a world in which both can flourish" [1, M13]. In so doing, he was sketching what theologian John Haught later termed the movement "From Conflict to Conversation" in the engagement between science and theology . This course seeks to explore that evolving conversation.
In three main lessons designed for non-experts, we will discuss the conversation between science and theology in the areas of cosmology, evolution, and modern physics. Introductory and concluding lessons will frame the subject with respect to questions of faith and discipleship. Through it all, our goal will be to enter that "wider world" that sets aside both religious and scientific fundamentalism and explores today's possibilities for a reasoned, well-integrated faith. We will adopt as our mentors thirteenth-century philosopher and theologian Thomas Aquinas, a renowned and sophisticated thinker who sought always to reconcile apparently conflicting accounts of truth, and John Haught, a theologian in the field of science and religion who has written an accessible summary of the positions various thinkers take on the issue.
This course is intended for use by groups in churches or by individuals online. It was developed by Kyle Matthew Oliver with funding from the Evangelical Education Society of the Episcopal Church. Many thanks to Lisa Kimball, the Center for the Ministry of Teaching at Virginia Theological Seminary, and the students of Dr. Kimball's Spring 2011 class "The Teaching Church."
