The Work of the Spirit: Pneumatology and Pentecostalism

Edited by Michael Welker
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Company, 2006

Ever since the sensational Azuza Street Revival in 1906, the global Pentecostal church has continued to explode numerically, pushing theological debates on the Holy Spirit to the forefront. This insightful collection draws together theologians, scientists, and Pentecostal scholars to make connections between the study and experience of the Holy Spirit. The Pneumatology Symposium was chaired by Michael Welker.

The Deep Structure of Biology: Is Convergence Sufficiently Ubiquitous to Give a Directional Signal?

The Deep Structure of Biology: Is Convergence Sufficiently Ubiquitous to Give a Directional Signal?

Edited by Simon Conway Morris
Templeton Press, May 2008

Twelve renowned scientists, philosophers, and theologians examine the phenomenon of convergence in biology, exemplified by the very similar construction of the camera-eye of cephalopods and vertebrates, and discuss the metaphysical implications that emerge if it is determined that the processes of evolution are more ordered and predicable that we had thought heretofore. The Purpose in Evolution symposium was chaired by Simon Conway Morris, professor of evolutionary palaeobiology at the University of Cambridge.

Becoming Human: Innovation in Prehistoric Material and Spiritual Culture

Becoming Human: Innovation in Prehistoric Material and Spiritual Culture

Edited by Colin Renfrew and Iain Morley
Cambridge University Press, March 2009

The Upper Paleolithic era of Europe has left an abundance of evidence for symbolic activities, such as direct representations of animals and other features of the natural world, personal adornments, and elaborate burials. These behaviors are also exhibited by populations throughout the world, from the prehistoric period to the present day. What do these activities tell us about the beliefs and priorities of the people who carried them out? How do these behaviors relate to ideologies, cosmology, and understanding of the world?
