This course is being offered as a House of Studies on campus in Brookings, SD

from June 24-28, 2019.

This course reflects critically upon the nature of both the scientific and the theological enterprises, and it seeks ways to connect these supposedly disparate disciplines. After introducing various motifs for understanding the relation of science and theology, this course defends a critical correlation of the disciplines that allows for theological and scientific propositions to make authentic truth claims that are in principle commensurate. The course develops a theology of nature that holds open the possibility of theo-physical causation.

Cost: $75 includes five lunches and breaks, other meals on your own.

(ILT students taking the class for credit pay usual tuition rate.)

Hotel: $91/Night at Comfort Suites University, (605) 692-2882
