One often hears of debates about science versus religion, or science‚Äôs compatibility with religion, but in the Christian tradition what might it mean to ask whether science plays a part in salvation? There are many possible answers: science can be interpreted as an alternative to grace (salvation by science alone), as a means of grace (God gives us science as part of redemption), as a product of grace (science as sanctification), or as fully irrelevant to salvation. Join us for lunch with the Rev. Dr. Lucas Mix, an Episcopal priest and astrobiologist, as he explores this provocative question.
