Cosmic Direction and the Spirit: On Teleology and Eschatology, Dr. Amos Yong

Please join us for a lecture and discussion by guest speaker, Dr. Amos Yong.

Cosmic Direction and the Spirit: On Teleology and Eschatology

Yong_headshot

Lecture topic:  How might Christian pneumatology make a difference in thinking about teleology in an evolutionary world? Might an eschatological theology of cosmic directionality make sense in the theology and science dialogue? Might considering teleology in terms of eschatology and vice-versa open up the possibility of a pneumatological theology of cosmic evolution? Pentecostal theologian Amos Yong attempts to connect these dots in this presentation and all are invited for the discussion.

Speaker bio: Amos Yong is Professor of Theology and Mission and director of the Center for Missiological Research at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California. His graduate education includes degrees in theology, history, and religious studies from Western Evangelical Seminary (now George Fox Seminary) and Portland State University, Portland, Oregon, and Boston University, Boston, Massachusetts, and an undergraduate degree from Bethany University of the Assemblies of God. He has authored or edited over thirty volumes, including The Spirit of Creation (2011), Science and the Spirit: A Pentecostal Engagement with the Sciences (2010), and The Spirit Renews the Face of the Earth: Pentecostal Forays in Science and Theology of Creation (2009).

Presented as part of the lecture series and graduate seminar:

2015 Advanced Seminar in Religion and Science
