Event details

The Andrews Autumn Conference on Religion and Science "Faith and Reason: Questions at the Interface of Religion and Science" will begin with a vespers on Friday, October 24 at 7:00 pm in the Seminary Chapel.  The keynote speaker will be Nancy Murphy, Professor of Christian Philosophy at Fuller Theological Seminary. Her presentation is titled "Conditional Immortality and Current Christian Physicalism."

Presentation Abstract: While the natural immortality of the soul was debated (and largely rejected) in the mid-twentieth century among theologians and biblical scholars, these conclusions apparently never reached the pews. Consequently the nature of the person and prospects for afterlife are hot topics now. The concept of conditional immortality is an important contribution to these discussions because it does not force a choice between body-soul composition and currently popular physicalist views. Nonetheless, it puts the emphasis where it should be for Christians: on God’s ability to restore us to life in the resurrection.
