Jan. 22: Bioethicist Ted Peters discusses science and Christianity

FREDERICK, Md.—A renowned theologian will visit Hood College on Sunday, Jan. 22, for a conversation on the intersection between science and the Christian faith.

Ted Peters’ talk, “Biomedical Ethics: Just Because We Can Do It, Should We?” is scheduled for 4 p.m. in the Whitaker Campus Center Commons. He will offer a theological analysis of culture, analyzing especially the role of science in culture.

Peters is an author, professor and pastor. He has contributed to more than two dozen books about theology. For more than three decades, he has been a distinguished research professor of systematic theology and ethics at Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary and Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California.
