Annual Russell Family Research Fellowship Conference in Religion and Science
Adam Pryor, Assistant Professor of Religion, Bethany College, Lindsborg, Kansas
Respondents: Braden Molhoek, Hyung-Joo Lee, Jamie Fowler and Ted Peters
Building on his forthcoming work Living with Tiny Aliens, Dr. Pryor will consider how the astrobiological research can influence three concepts widely used within the Christian theological tradition: the image of God, sin, and vocation. He will consider the significance and challenges of understanding these doctrines in light of an astrobiological and ecological sense of 'planetarity.' Finally, he will consider how reframing these theological concepts at a planetary scale has consequences for imagining the ethical actions of individual religious persons.
