“Getting at the Truth: Science and Religion in the Best of All Worlds”
“Getting at the Truth: Science and Religion in the Best of All Worlds” will be the topic for the annual Summerhays Lecture, featuring Robert L. Millet, Friday, March 30, at 7 p.m. in Brigham Young University’s Harold B. Lee Library Auditorium.
Admission will be free, and the public is welcome to attend.
“The everlasting quest for truth has been and continues to be an endeavor that drives us to our intellectual extremities, as well as to our knees,” Millet said. His presentation will suggest principles to live by when seeking to “learn by study and also by faith” and how to reconcile what has been discovered with what has been revealed.
Millet is a BYU professor of ancient scripture with interests in outreach and interfaith relations. He earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees from BYU and a doctoral degree from Florida State University. Since joining the BYU faculty, he has served as chair of the Department of Ancient Scripture, dean of Religious Education, director of the Religious Studies Center and the Richard L. Evans Professor of Religious Understanding.
The goal of the Summerhays Lecture series is to give the university community and all others interested an opportunity to delve deeper into the relationship between science and religion.
