The Bible for Normal People

Pete Enns, Ph.D.

On April 12, I will be at NC State speaking and participating in a panel discussion on the topic of—stop me if you’ve heard this one–Adam and Evolution. Click conference flyer for more information.

Speaking also will be Dr. Sujin Pak, assistant professor of church history at Duke Divinity School, on how Genesis 1 and 2 have been interpreted in church history, and Dr. Greg Reeves, assistant professor of chemical and bio-molecular engineering at NC State, who will give his perspective on the interface of science and his own Christian faith.

Then on April 17, I will be returning to at Azusa Pacific University for the annual “Science, Faith, and Culture Lecture” sponsored by the Center for Research in Science.

They had originally asked me if I could speak on “Structural and Molecular Characterization of Iron-sensing Hemerythrin-like Domain within F-box and Leucine-rich Repeat Protein 5 (FBXL5),” but I asked if I could switch my topic that uses words that (1) are in a dictionary, and (2) I can pronounce, like: “Factors Influencing Personal Differences in Approaches to Science.”

They were kind enough to comply, seeing that if they didn’t my talk might be delayed for 25 years while I go and try to get a degree in the kind of science that deals this sort of thing and hopefully also grow a new area of my brain that could process the information.
