Science and faith have a long, complex and storied relationship. We’re convinced that better understanding the past can help us better navigate the future.
To that end, we cordially invite you to Science and the Christian Faith: Moments That Shaped History at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary on February 21-22.
In this post, get to know one of our speakers, Dr. Ted Cabal, who will speak on “the Galileo affair.”
Ted Cabal is Professor of Philosophy and Apologetics at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, where he has taught since 1998. Previously he taught at Dallas Baptist University and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, where he received his PhD in philosophy of religion.
Ted coauthored Controversy of the Ages: Why Christians Should Not Divide over the Age of the Earth (Lexham Press, 2018) and is general editor of The Apologetics Study Bible (B&H, 2nd ed., 2017). His special interest in the faith and reason relationship stems from his coming to faith in Christ as a professional rock guitarist and atheist while reading the book of Matthew. This interest informs his decades of studying conservative evangelical interaction with science. Ted’s life also was dramatically shaped by a diagnosis of terminal cancer (multiple myeloma) in 2001 followed by years of chemotherapy. Remarkably, Ted’s cancer has remained “asleep” for more than a decade without need of treatment.
Join Ted Cabal and others at Science and the Christian Faith: Moments that Shaped History.
