Steve Wilkens, Ph.D., professor of theology and ethics in the School of Theology, and the Center for Research in Science (CRIS)

Wilkens is the author of several books including Beyond Bumper Sticker Ethics, Good Ideas from Questionable Christians and Outright Pagans, Christianity and Western Thought: Faith and Reason in the Nineteenth Century, Vol II (with Alan G. Padgett).


Wilkens delivers his lecture, “Orthodoxy, Orthopraxis, and Orthokardia,” as part of APU’s Center for Research in Science’s series, “Walking the Walk: Science and Faith in Action.” This lecture suggests that science and faith overlap not only in a cognitive sense, but also in matters of practice and the heart. Current assumptions and practices in much of higher education imply that faith has no place in academia, but Wilkens demonstrates how Christian resources actually expand the scope of science and facilitate a robust integration of faith and learning.

The Center for Research in Science (CRIS) exists to serve a community of students, scholars, and laypersons by promoting research that encompasses the scope of scientific studies and addresses the inseparable relationship between science and culture, its role in classical liberal arts education, and the ancient dialogue between faith and reason.
