This year has been an exciting one in scientific circles. From nuclear fusion breakthroughs through stunning images deep space to new cancer treatments and vaccines, the year that was 2022 will be one to remember.
Our combined December/January issue centers, however, on the advancements or discussions that have excited theologians and scientists over the past year. There are many more of course, but we have seen some renewed dialogue emerge that has the potential to rewrite not only humanity’s view of itself but how faith and science captures the public’s collective imagination.
There are other topics that we explore in this issue that are also marking new territory. These include cosmogenesis, eco-theology, as well as issues surrounding technology and climate change.
We hope you have enjoyed reading our coverage of faith and science this past year and we look forward to providing more articles and resources in 2023 in conjunction with the Lutheran Alliance for Faith, Science and Technology. If you missed some issues or would like a take a look back at the year that was we encourage you to review the online archive.
