Event Description

Almost 80 years after the famous 1925 "Scopes Monkey Trial," the teaching of evolution was once again in the courtroom in Dover, Pennsylvania. What is it about the science of evolution that makes it so difficult for many Christians to come to terms with some of its consequences? This talk places this controversy within a U.S. context, but also shows that resources are available within the Christian tradition for a healthy dialogue between science and faith, even with some of the difficult problems raised by evolution.

Dr. Matthew Ashley | Associate Professor of Systematic Theology, University of Notre Dame
