The Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences (CTNS) has been awarded a $200,000 research grant from Calvin College[1] for Project SATURN (Scientific and Theological Understandings of Randomness in Nature). The purpose of this grant is to study the scientific warrants for and theological implications of randomness, propensities and indeterminism in nature - including such natural phenomena as the self-organization of the rings of Saturn out of apparently random processes and gravitational interactions.

Robert John Russell publishes new book Time in Eternity

Robert John Russell, the Ian G. Barbour Professor of Theology and Science in residence at the Graduate Theological Union, has published a new book titled Time in Eternity: Pannenberg, Physics, and Eschatology in Creative Mutual Interaction.

Time in Eternity: Pannenberg, Physics, and Eschatology in Creative Mutual Interaction

According to Robert John Russell, one of the foremost scholars on relating Christian theology and science, the topic of “time and eternity” is central to the relation between God and the world in two ways. First, it involves the notion of the divine eternity as the supratemporal source of creaturely time. Second, it involves the eternity of the eschatological New Creation beginning with the bodily Resurrection of Jesus in relation to creaturely time.
