LETU to Present 'Test of Faith' Film Sept. 17

Tue, Sep 15 2009

LeTourneau University will screen a portion of a controversial film titled “Test of Faith” which is designed to aid churches in exploring relevant issues of science and faith. The event begins at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 17, in the university’s Berry Auditorium in the Glaske Engineering Building at the university’s main campus, 2100 S. Mobberly Ave. in Longview. The event is free and open to the public.
Church leaders are particularly encouraged to attend, according to LETU Professor of Chemistry Dr. Gary DeBoer, who will direct group discussions that addresses the question, “Does science threaten belief in God?” 
The film addresses biological evolution, and was produced in part by the Faraday Institute. 
“Because the material is designed as a course, it cannot be shown in its entirety in one night,” DeBoer said “Therefore, a representative segment of the film will be shown that will allow for small group discussions.” For more information about the film, visit www.testoffaith.com .
