New methods in astronomy and new models in evolutionary biology have opened up new expectations that we humans may not be alone in the cosmos. How are Christian theologians to consider this in light of what God has revealed in the Incarnation of his Son in Christ? In this lecture, Prof. Chris Baglow, the Director of the Science and Religion Initiative at the McGrath Institute for Church Life at the University of Notre Dame, will draw upon the thought of classical and modern theologians to propose some possibilities for what Christians might expect to discover if the universe is inhabited by other species who, like Homo sapiens, are created in the divine image.

This event is co-sponsored by the Hope College departments of Religion, Philosophy, and Physics.
