Listen to Kenneth Miller's Lecture on Darwin and Christian Faith
Acclaimed cell biologist and author Kenneth Miller spoke at Pepperdine University on Wednesday, Nov. 14, as the third lecturer of the 2007-08 Seaver College Dean's Distinguished Lecture Series. As part of Pepperdine's continuing effort to make lectures available to the public, the audio version of Miller's lecture, titled "Darwin and Christian Faith," is now available online. Listen to the lecture.
Miller completed his undergraduate work at Brown University, and earned a Ph.D. in biology at the University of Colorado. He served on the faculty at Harvard University until 1980, when he returned to Brown as professor of biology. Miller's research on cell membrane structure and function has produced more than 50 scientific papers and reviews in leading journals. In 2007 he was named a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. In addition to widely used textbooks on biology, Miller is author of Finding Darwin's God: A Scientist's Search of Common Ground Between God and Evolution (1999).
Now in its 10th anniversary year, the Seaver College Dean's Distinguished Lecture Series brings nationally renowned speakers to the University to give lectures and engage in a question and answer period. The lecture series provides the Pepperdine and local communities, as well as online listeners, the opportunity to hear a variety of outstanding national scholars and professionals who are exceptional examples in their field.
The remaining 2007-08 speakers include Tobias Wolff, literary luminary; Marianne Jennings, business ethics author; Charlotte Canning, theater historian; and Mark Noll, leading evangelical historian.
