Geologist to speak on evolving creation for Bethel College science lecture

September 11th, 2017

NORTH NEWTON, KAN. – Geologist Keith B. Miller will present a lecture on "An Evolving Creation: Scientific Evidence and Theological Implications" at 11 a.m., Thursday, Feb 19 in the Administration Building Chapel at Bethel College in North Newton. The lecture is part of the college's Natural Sciences Seminar spring program. Miller teaches in the geology department at Kansas State University (KSU), Manhattan. Miller's lecture will reflect themes from a book he edited, titled "Perspectives on an Evolving Creation," which was published by Eerdmans last fall. The book, including several chapters by Miller, focuses on issues in science and religion, especially evolution.

Miller is a member of Kansas Citizens for Science, an advocacy group for good science education.

"Dr. Miller's lecture will be interesting because he is a geologist who fully accepts evolutionary principles, while at the same time he is a serious and thoughtful Christian. It will be good to hear his synthesis of these themes, which many suppose to be in conflict," says Wayne Wiens, professor of biology at Bethel College.

Admission to the lecture is free and open to the public.
