2019 Co-Sponsored Fall Conference

God’s Wisdom and the Wonder of Creation: Exploring the Intersection of Scripture, Theology, and the Sciences

October 25-26, 2019

Northeastern Seminary, Rochester, New York

The faculty and administration of Northeastern Seminary (in conjunction with the Canadian-American Theological Association, the Canadian Scientific and Christian Affiliation, the American Scientific Affiliation, and BioLogos) welcome proposals for papers to be presented at an interdisciplinary conference at Northeastern Seminary in Rochester, NY. This Call for Papers goes out to established scholars or practitioners in the theological and scientific disciplines, as well as to graduate students, post-docs, and pre-tenured faculty.

Our keynote speaker is Dr. William P. Brown, William Marcellus McPheeters Professor of Old Testament at Columbia Theological Seminary. Dr. Brown is the author of numerous books, including The Ethos of the Cosmos: The Genesis of Moral Imagination in the Bible (Eerdmans, 1999); The Seven Pillars of Creation: The Bible, Science, and the Ecology of Wonder (Oxford University Press, 2010); and Wisdom’s Wonder: Character, Creation, and Crisis in the Bible’s Wisdom Literature (Eerdmans, 2014).

In line with the topic of Dr. Brown’s lectures, we invite submission of high quality papers on any topic related to the broad theme of “God’s Wisdom and the Wonder of Creation: Exploring the Intersection of Scripture, Theology, and the Sciences.” We welcome papers from the theological or the scientific side, especially those that explore intersections of a biblical vision with issues in science. Papers should be scholarly but not highly specialized presentations of about 25 minutes, aimed at an audience of students, pastors, and faculty from across the spectrum of theological and scientific disciplines.

The Call for Papers can be found here.

Details for the conference can be found here.
