What is the Summerhays Lecture?
The Summerhays Lecture series, sponsored by the College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, aims to highlight areas of agreement between science and religion, and to give scholars of faith an opportunity to advance faith-promoting views. All of the presenters are scholars at the top of their fields as well as unapologetic about their religious beliefs.
