On this episode of ID the Future we hear John Mark Reynolds’ concluding comments at the November 2019 symposium in honor of the late Phillip E. Johnson. Reynolds is a Fellow with the Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture, president of the Constantine School in Houston, and a long-time friend of Phillip Johnson. Reynolds says he saw in Johnson a mind constant and relentless in the pursuit of truth, a man who refused to distort the truth to fit it into a materialist paradigm, and who passed along that mindset to as many as he could, for he knew there is no success without successors.
On this episode of ID the Future from the vault, Logan Gage talks with Dr. John Mark Reynolds, at the time the head of Biola University’s Torrey Honors Institute. Listen in as they discuss Reynolds’ book When Athens Met Jerusalem: An Introduction to Classical and Christian Thought. How did science develop? What were the Judeo-Christian roots of the scientific revolution? What about the often-underappreciated role of the Eastern Church? And what about the contributions of ancient Greek thought? Reynolds also explores how some of the giants of ancient Greek philosophy made design arguments.
