Giberson to discuss faith, learning relationship

Huntington, Ind.-Huntington University's 2009-2010 Forester Lecture Series will begin Sept. 10 with Dr. Karl W. Giberson, professor of physics at Eastern Nazarene College.

Giberson will present "Making Friends with Darwin: A Christian's Painful Journey" at 7 p.m. in the Zurcher Auditorium of the Merillat Centre for the Arts. As part of The Examined Christian Life Series, his lecture will focus on what it means to be an educated Christian and the role of higher learning in the journey of faith.

Giberson is executive vice president of the BioLogos Foundation, director of the Forum on Faith and Science at Gordon College, and editor-at-large of Science and Religion Today. His books, including "Worlds Apart: The Unholy War between Religion and Science" (Beacon Hill, 1993) and "Saving Darwin: How to be a Christian and Believe in Evolution" (HarperOne, 2009), have garnered national attention and have established him as a leading commentator on the relationship between religious belief and scientific inquiry.

Each semester, Huntington University presents the Forester Lecture Series. The lectures are designed to bring interesting persons and topics to the attention of students and the regional community. The lectures are open to the public free of charge.

The Forester Lecture Series is coordinated by Dr. Jeff Webb, associate professor of history. For further information, contact Webb at (260) 359-4243.
