Roundtables are a unique opportunity for students at Princeton University to get more involved in a focused discussion on specific issues of particular importance to Christians living in the unique environment of a private, secular educational institution. We hope to select a particular issue or set of questions every six to eight weeks about which Revisions will especially solicit – and perhaps even commission – articles. Then follows a period of article writing and discussion online which will ultimately culminate in an on-campus discussion at which contributors to the journal – as well as those interested in the topic – will be able to get together and talk about their views. Writers of articles who are willing are given a chance to give a short presentation of their position in order to jump-start the discussion(s).
Our current Roundtable Discussion is focused on the question of Origins:
How do you understand Biblical accounts of creation, especially Genesis 1–3, in light of current trends and hypotheses of contemporary science and modern Biblical scholarship?
