Theology and the Natural Sciences in Aotearoa Auckland (TANSAA)
Tyndale-Carey Graduate School
Bible College of New Zealand
Henderson, Waitakere City
This initiative assembles theologians, scientists, historians, pastors, students, and interested community members to collectively seek insights into issues at the intersection of the natural sciences and Christian faith. Participants hail from multiple area institutions and each hold some training in scientific and religious disciplines. The group will promote excellence, cutting-edge research, and breadth of discussion in the areas of science and religion. Meetings for member presentations and discussion take place at least ten times per year. In addition, they will host a small library and plan and sponsor three major public conferences each year inviting outside lecturers. Conference proceedings will be published for wider distribution. Topics discussed will include cosmology, evolution, and purpose; Imago Dei; sensus divinitatis; eschatology; and string theology.
