Event description

Description

The doctrine of creation was one of the earliest contested doctrines of the church. The pagan philosophical tradition tended to disregard the value of the material world. The Gnostic sects went further, demonizing the Creator and denigrating materiality. As a consequence, suspicions regarding the goodness of the material world pervaded much of the early Christian tradition. More recently, new questions have emerged regarding human origins and the Darwinian account of evolution. The ancient heresies, as well as the more recent questions of modern science, continue to impact Christian theology — from Christology, to ethics, to anthropology, to eschatology and beyond. The 2017 CPT Conference will explore the cluster of topics related to the doctrine of creation, with a view to illuminating and applying the Church’s historic teaching on the beginning, purpose, and eschatological end of the world that God has made. We invite you to join us.
