Dates and Place: June 26 – July 6, 2017, Northwestern Alps (Italy, France, Switzerland)


Purpose: Experience firsthand how the biblical worldview impacts our understanding of nature. Learn about the strengths and limitations of historical sciences. Acquire a firm grasp of the key concepts that are considered controversial in the faith and science debate. Leave with an energizing appreciation of how nature and Scripture testify of a powerful and good Creator.
