Traditionally, theologians have drawn a sharp distinction between natural theology and special revelation. Increasingly, we understand the physical world through the process of scientific enquiry. Natural theology tries to describe what we can know about God through reasoning from our observations of the world. On the other hand, the Christian tradition is that special revelation is given to us by God, and especially expressed through God’s incarnation in the person of Jesus Christ, as attested in the Scriptures.
Dr Holder will argue that, in the twenty-first century, it is not reasonable simply to assert specifically Christian claims by saying that they are ‘revealed’. Rather, these claims should be argued for using evidence and reason.
Following the talk there will be an opportunity for questions and discussion. The number of participants will be limited so please register your interest as soon as possible.
This event is organised by the Science and Faith in Norfolk group, and you can find further details and a poster on their website.
