The Emmanuel Centre for the Study of Science, Religion and Society is an initiative of Emmanuel College within The University of Queensland. The Emmanuel Centre supports inquiry that meets the challenge of relating the historic Christian faith to the academy. Since an honest engagement with important questions has an exploratory dimension to it, the research undertaken through the Emmanuel Centre precludes predicted answers. As such, the use of the Bible as a fundamental resource within the Emmanuel Centre is characterised by faithfulness rather than conformity. Academics and students undertaking research in a spirit that reflects our aims to listen and learn from the insights of others are invited to participate in our activities.
