Religion vs. Science: What Religious People Really Think

Tuesday, January 30, 2018 | 7:00 - 8:30pm Add to Calendar

Join us for the official book release of Religion vs. Science: What Religious People Really Think (Oxford University Press 2017), the culmination of a five-year study of Christian, Jewish, and Muslim perspectives on science. Co-authors Elaine Howard Ecklund and Christopher P. Scheitle will give some remarks and additional insights into the book. Pastor Lee Hsia of Houston’s First Baptist Church and Rabbi Geoff Mitelman of Sinai and Synapses will moderate the conversation and provide unique perspectives on the book’s content.

This event is sponsored by the Religion and Public Life Program at Rice University with support from the Program in Jewish Studies at Rice.

The event will be held in the Kyle Morrow Room on the third floor of Fondren Library, located on Rice University’s campus.
