The second Case discussion group for 2009 is scheduled for the 30th of July. It will focus on the topic of God and Science as well as more specific issues raised in Case 19 and will be led by Dr Lewis Jones.
The 2009 New College Lectures will offer a Christian perspective on the impact that technology is having on medical practices. Informed by a biblical understanding of God’s purposes Prof Wyatt will consider the bioethical issues that we face every day as we make decisions about creating, preserving and protecting life. The three public lectures will be presented by Professor John Wyatt, the author of Matters of Life and Death and Professor of Ethics and Perinatology at University College, London, and Consultant Neonatologist at University College London Hospitals. The lectures will be held from the 8-10 September at The John Niland Scientia Building (night 1) and New College, at UNSW. More information can be found at http://www.newcollege.unsw.edu.au/newcollegelectures.html or you can RSVP by phoning on 02 9381 1999.
As promised, Case 19 - The God of Science has just been published and is on its way to readers. This magazine explores in depth the multiplicity of views on the compatibility of science and faith in addition to alternative views often offered by contenders through articles from Kirstin Birkett, Denis Alexander, Michael Murray, Lewis Jones and Cameron Blair. These articles examine issues from naturalism to the relation of God to evolution to the role of God in moral reasoning, presenting their subjects clearly and accurately in their discussion of the overarching question “Can science and faith complement one another or are they inevitably in conflict?”

As is our aim here at Case, we hope that these publications stimulate you to ponder and challenge many of the world views which are presented to us daily and necessitate much more thought than we so often give them.
