The Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences (CTNS) promotes the creative mutual interaction between theology and the natural sciences through research, teaching and public service. CTNS focuses on developments in physics, cosmology, evolutionary biology, and genetics, with additional topics in the neurosciences, the environmental sciences, and mathematics. It brings discoveries from these fields into creative dialogue and interaction with theology and ethics both in Christian thought and across the multiple religious traditions represented at the GTU. At the GTU, CTNS offers courses, advising, and the annual Townes Fellowship for students, as well as events and lectures for the GTU community and the general public. As a research institution, CTNS produces the journal, Theology and Science, and other scholarly books and articles, runs the annual Russell Family Fellowship in Religion and Science, and manages various grant-funded programs in support of the field of science and religion worldwide. Established in 1981, CTNS is sustained in part by an international membership and individual donors. You can access a wealth of additional CTNS resources at www.ctns.org.
