For this concluding talk in the Christians in Science Bristol 2014-15 Origins series, Ernest will lead us to reflect on the science of origins in a way faithful to both the findings of science and the revealed word of God contained in the Bible. What does the Bible say about the origins of the cosmos, of life, and of humans and human personality? How has this been interpreted, and sometimes misinterpreted, in the Christian tradition? How can it be related to the modern scientific understanding of these issues?
7.30pm, Thursday 4 June (arrive from 7pm for tea and cake)
Tyndale Baptist Church, Whiteladies Rd, Clifton, Bristol BS8 2QG (directly opposite Clifton Down rail station and shopping centre)
