Thanks to a “Science for Seminaries” awarded to the Regent University School of Divinity, the Library has a subscription to Science, one of the world’s most important scientific journals.

Science, also known as Science Magazine, is a top peer-reviewed journal published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). The journal is published weekly and covers the full range of scientific disciplines. Features include new research, reviews, and news important to the scientific community.

The Science subscription will support interdisciplinary research and facilitate the integration of science and faith at Regent. Keep an eye out for other opportunities supported by this grant, such as campus guest speakers, a national conference about the intersection of the Holy Spirit, science, and theological education, and a peer-reviewed essay contest.

Overall, the goal of the grant is to improve the discourse around faith and science. School of Divinity professor Dr. Wolfgang Vondey explains, “We believe it will improve students’ understanding of the dynamic character of science in conversation with theological education, and it also provides teachers and students with resources to discuss the possible renewal of science and Christian faith.”
