SPECIAL SPEAKER SERIES THIS FALL
“Creation in Scripture” with Rev. Steven Tuell, Ph.D.
Both critics and defenders of Christian faith often assume that the Bible presents a straightforward account of how the world was made: one side defends this account, while the other attacks it. But close reading of Scripture reveals that the Bible’s multiple creation texts are more interested in what the world means than in how or when it was made. This forces us to ask new questions. Through a close, careful reading of several texts concerning creation in the Old and New Testaments, we will consider both what Scripture says about the world as creation and God as creator, and what it does not say. Rev. Dr. Steven Tuell is the James A. Kelso Professor of Hebrew and Old Testament at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary.
