Science for Seminaries

tyronebh-blog-090816Columbia Theological Seminary is one of ten Christian Seminaries part of a pilot program by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) for integrating science into core theological curricula during 2015-2017. Grants totaling $1.5 million were awarded to the schools for integrating science into the curriculum for at least two core theological courses (such as those in systematic theology, biblical studies, church history, and pastoral theology) over the next two years. This integrated approach will bring science into the core of seminary theological education, impacting individual seminaries as well as the ministries in which graduates serve. This AAAS lecture is one of many science-focused, campus-wide activities to complement these courses. Resources from the project will be made available to interested seminaries as the project unfolds, some of which will be archived online at
