"The Big Bang, Stephen Hawking and God" Renowned Author and Scholar to Lecture

Dr. Henry F. "Fritz" Schaefer, Graham Perdue Professor and director of the Center for Computational Quantum Chemistry at the University of Georgia, will address the relationship between God and science on Thursday, April 7, 7 p.m. Pappert Lecture Hall, Bayer Learning Center, Duquesne University.

Renowned for his integrated approach to the relationship between science and religion, Schaefer brings a unique blend of scientific insight, theological reflection and humor to a topic of intimate appeal to human nature. Schaefer’s exploration of the fundamental questions of existence popularized by Stephen Hawking, led to the release of his book Science and Christianity: Conflict or Coherence, which will be available at a book signing following the lecture.
