Executive Summary of the Templeton Grant: The ReFaithing Science at Regent College initiative takes up the theme of Science in Dialogue by addressing the following Big Question: “How can the relationship between Christian faith and scientific endeavor be conceptualized and communicated in a way that effectively engages diverse audiences?” Sir John Templeton recognized that science and spirituality should be neither sealed in separate boxes nor positioned at opposite ends of a battlefield, yet even a cursory glance at contemporary culture reveals that the supposed incompatibility and even hostility between faith and science is something of a truism in much of Western society. Regent College believes that this widespread perception is a significant threat to the development of theology and science alike, as well as to the spiritual and intellectual flourishing of countless individuals. The project team proposes an alternative model for the relationship between faith and science: mutual coinherence, or existence within one another. The goal of each project activity is to explore the implications of this model and to communicate it in an accessible form that encourages and enables further exploration of science, theology, and their interaction. The project outputs—academic publications, public lectures, two graduate-level courses of study, and an online hub for content and resources related to faith and science—will target different audiences with the same basic narrative, a story of one world, created by one God, who can be known and worshiped through both theology and science—and who is best known and best worshiped when theology and science work together. By introducing this narrative to present and future thought leaders in faith communities, scientific communities, and the wider world, Regent College hopes to contribute thousands of critically engaged, spiritually committed, and graciously inclined participants to the ongoing dialogue between faith and science.

CT Science Editor--Part Time

Science Editor--part time 20 hours per week

Christianity Today is a nonprofit, global media ministry centered on beautiful orthodoxy—strengthening the church by richly communicating the breadth of the true, good, and beautiful gospel. Reaching over 3.5 million people monthly with various digital and print resources, the ministry equips Christians to renew their minds, serve the church, and create culture to the glory of God.

The Behemoth is Christianity Today’s biweekly magazine aiming to inspire awe, wonder, and gratitude to God, drawing from natural sciences, social sciences, history, theology, personal narrative, and other subject matter. We’re dramatically expanding our science coverage and are seeking a science editor who will also contribute to its sister publications, including Christianity Today, Leadership Journal, Today’s Christian Woman, and Books & Culture.

The ideal science editor:

Is deeply curious about the world around them, with broad interests in a variety of fields and disciplines.

Is more interested in joyful discovery than in fights over origins and policy.

Is skilled in storytelling, copyediting, and translating complicated scientific concepts.

Cares near-obsessively about accuracy—not just in scientific concepts and discoveries, but in grammar, syntax, and punctuation.

Sees readers as friends with whom they want to share something transcendent, rather than students who need to be informed or corrected.

Loves finding scientist-writers and science writers who share the characteristics above, and loves making their work the best it can be.

Is a self-starter who enjoys working with one core team and a variety of other coworkers and colleagues.

Is passionate about Christianity Today’s vision for the church grown up into the fullness of Christ, and harbors a deep love for the evangelical Christian leaders who make up our core audience.

DUTIES

Develop and nurture a team of science journalists (journalists with a specialty in science, as well as scientists who can write for the general public) who can contribute articles.

Assign, edit, and occasionally write science articles for clarity, style, and length, with speed and accuracy, for The Behemoth, and secondarily other Christianity Today publications.

Participate actively and knowledgeably in all staff and editorial meetings of The Behemoth and, as needed, other CT publications.

Work with Christianity Today, Books & Culture, Today’s Christian Woman, and Leadership Journal to expand their imaginations to see how science impact their readers and their editorial purpose.

Stay abreast, through reading articles and books and attending the appropriate seminars and conferences, of scientific developments that are shaping the church and society today.

QUALIFICATIONS

Candidates for the position must already be a strong journalist and editor. And they have to know and love the natural world. They have to demonstrate fluency and competence with a variety of science fields and concepts—not necessarily as a researcher, but as someone who can write intelligently about the research for a general readership.

We are looking for an editor with a significant science background, but we are flexible on what degree(s) the candidate has. (A Ph.D. may not be overqualified. A B.A. may not be underqualified.)

Candidates should be willing to sign our statement of faith, and should be familiar with both basic Christian theology and evangelical culture.

Candidates willing to work at Christianity Today’s offices in Carol Stream, Illinois, are preferred. The science editor will at least be required to travel frequently to our offices.

To apply for this position, please fill out a Christianity Today application and submit it to hrdept@christianitytoday.com

In order to be considered, download the employment application form. Please email a saved, signed copy of the application, along with a cover letter and resume, to hrdept@christianitytoday.com; or fax a copy to 630-260-9011.
