While holding that science and religion should be harmonious, Dr. Griffin argues, there are conflicts for one of two reasons. Either Christian faith is interpreted in such a way as to contradict scientific naturalism, which is a great truth. Or scientific naturalism is interpreted in such a way as to contradict the primary doctrines of Christian faith, which constitute another great truth.

A professor (emeritus) at Claremont School of Theology, Dr. Griffin has written several books on science and religion, including Two Great Truths: A New Synthesis of Scientific Naturalism and Christian Faith.

There will be ample time for discussion following Dr. Griffin's presentation.
