Faith Seeking Understanding: Three Christian thinkers reconcile reason and religion

Much has been made in recent years about the so-called conflict between science and religion. But the issues involved in this conversation are neither new nor hopeless, and countless religious thinkers throughout the centuries have held a lively faith engaged with the best in contemporary knowledge and scholarship. Find out about three of them in this presentation with discussion.

Kyle Matthew Oliver is a senior at Virginia Theological Seminary and holds a B.S. and an M.S. from the department of engineering physics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
