Join authors Elaine Howard Ecklund and Christopher P. Scheitle for the release of their book, Religion vs. Science: What Religious People Really Think (Oxford University Press 2017) for an event sponsored by the Religion and Public Life Program with support from the Program in Jewish Studies at Rice University.
Religion vs. Science is based on a five-year study of religious Americans’ views of science, called the Religious Understandings of Science (RUS) study. The RUS study surveyed 10,000 Americans about their views on the relationship between religion and science, as well as specific scientific issues such as stem cell research, evolution and creation, science education, and others. The survey was in addition to more than 300 in-person interviews. Pastor Lee Hsia of Houston’s First Baptist Church and Rabbi Geoff Mitelman of Sinai and Synapses will moderate the conversation and provide unique perspectives on the book’s content.
RSVP required and will be announced on the website shortly prior to the event.
