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 Davis, who will speak on “the Scopes Monkey Trial.”
Prof Edward B. (“Ted”) Davis is Distinguished Professor of the History of Science at Messiah College, Affiliate Fellow in the Department of the History of Science at University of Oklahoma, and Fellow of the International Society for Science & Religion. With Michael Hunter, Davis edited The Works of Robert Boyle, 14 vols. (Pickering & Chatto, 1999-2000), and a separate edition of Robert Boyle’s great treatise on God and nature, A Free Enquiry into the Vulgarly Received Notion of Nature(Cambridge University Press, 1996). Routledge will soon reissue his edition of The Antievolution Pamphlets of Harry Rimmer (Garland Publishing, 1995).
He has published dozens of articles and essays about religion and science in the Scientific Revolution and modern America, including a study of modern Jonah stories that was featured on two BBC radio programs. A recently completed book about the religious activities and beliefs of prominent American scientists from the period between the two world wars is under review at an academic press. He is currently writing a book about Christianity and the creation of modern science aimed at a general audience.
Join Ted Davis and others at Science and the Christian Faith: Moments that Shaped History.
