John Cobb & Friends Gathering: An Interview with Ted Peters

April 2 @ 10:00 am 12:00 pm PDT

Topic: Astrotheology Now and Then: An Interview with Ted Peters

Presenters: Ted Peters and Andrew M. Davis

We invited frequent Cobb & Friends guest Andrew M. Davis, program director for the Center for Process Studies, to share thoughts prompted by his recent book, co-edited with Roland Faber, Astrophilosophy, Exotheology, and Cosmic Religion:  Extraterrestrial Life in a Process Universe.  He accepted our invitation, and he invited Rev. Dr. Ted Peters to join him for a dialogue on “Astrotheology Now and Then.”  Both will be on the program of the Star Island conference sponsored this coming June by IRAS, the Institute for Religion in the Age of Science.  Andrew, described on his website as a “scholar of cosmological wonder,” will say a bit about his recent book, and Ted will give history concerning his own engagement in the topic and the significance of the process voice as now formally a part of it.
Ted Peters, a Lutheran pastor, co-edits the Journal of Science and Theology at the Francisco J. Ayala Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California. An acclaimed author, he most recently published Astrotheology: Science and Theology Meet Extraterrestrial Life. (Cascade Books, 2018). Find more about Ted Peters and his range of interests  at his Wikipedia entry and at his home page
You’ll find at this YouTube link Andrew Davis’s recent lecture at Villanova University on “Metaphysics Beyond Earth: Whitehead, Teilhard, and the Emergence of Process Exo-Theology.”
