Description

Matthew Ramage, Professor of Theology at Benedictine College, has become an outstanding figure in the theological world through his scholarly engagement of Benedict XVI’s work on scripture and evolution. His recent book, From the Dust of the Earth: Benedict XVI, the Bible, and the Theory of Evolution is providing new ways of looking at the Bible while embracing the scientific development of evolutionary theory. Ramage’s work includes translations of Benedict’s work otherwise unavailable in English and, throughout, it is thoroughly honest in its treatment of scripture in light of evolutionary theory.

On Wednesday, March 1 noon-1:00pm, Dr. Ramage will guide us in exploring issues of science and theology. How can the Bible, Catholic/Christian theology, and the theory of evolution be reconciled? How can they be reconciled while accepting the scientific consensus about evolutionary origins of the human race? Matthew Ramage’s work focuses on these issues, and he synthesizes some of the best and most important figures of contemporary interest.
