Religion and Science
Does faith have a role in environmentalism? Will climate change transform the way we think about God? Is there a Biblical notion of stewardship? If so, do Jews and Christians interpret it in the same way? Listen in as distinguished novelists and critics Marilynne Robinson and Jonathan Rosen host a conversation about creation, Darwinism, and the reconciliation of science and religion. Marilyn Robinson's books include the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel Gilead, Housekeeping, and The Death of Adam: Essays on Modern Thought. Jonathan Rosen is the author of The Talmud and the Internet and the novels Eve's Apple and Joy Comes in the Morning. His new book is The Life of the Skies: Birding at the End of Nature.
