Azusa Pacific University’s Center for Research in Science (CRIS) presents a Science, Faith, and Culture Lecture: The Science–Religion Dialog as if Jesus’ Life and Teachings Matter, presented by physicist and theologian, George L. Murphy, Ph. D. An ordained Lutheran pastor who also holds a doctorate in physics from Johns Hopkins University, Murphy conducted research and taught at the college level for 12 years. The author of six books, his most recent is Models of Atonement: Speaking about Salvation in a Scientific World (2013). Murphy also serves as the theology editor of Covalence, the online publication of the Lutheran Alliance for Faith, Science and Technology.


Many discussions about science and Christianity say little about the heart of Christian faith. This lecture considers the relationship of faith and science in light of Jesus' life, teachings, death, and resurrection. Questions about evolution, human origins, sin, and salvation will be addressed.
