Science and theology symposium at Messiah College features Robert Russell

GRANTHAM, Pa. (Oct. 22, 2009) - Physicist and theologian Robert Russell will speak at Messiah College on Nov. 14. Russell will present "From Creation to New Creation" during three public lectures that are part of a science and theology symposium sponsored by the Central Pennsylvania Forum for Religion and Science. All three lectures will take place in Hostetter Chapel located on the college's Grantham campus and begin at 10 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Advanced tickets are $25 before Nov. 1 and $35 until the day of the event. Tickets can be purchased by calling 717-691-6036 or online at www.messiah.edu/tickets.

About the lectures
Russell's three lectures will explore a variety of topics on the mutual interaction between Christian theology and the natural sciences. From a theology of creation as it interacts with both scientific and evolutionary biology to a theology of the "new creation" based on the resurrection of Jesus, the lectures will explore the challenges between two beliefs. All lectures will include a question and answer period. Further details are at http://www.messiah.edu/godandscience/fall09/russell.html.
