ISSR is pleased to announce that we will be hosting an online event next week for the 2021 ISSR Book Prize for Science and Religion’s 2021 prize winners. To raise the profile of the Prize we are hosting a one-hour online event in which each of the three prize-winning authors will have a chance to talk about their book, and to discuss it with one of the judges from the Prize Committee. There will be an opportunity for questions from the online audience afterwards. The event will be chaired by Michael J Reiss, President of ISSR. The winners of this year’s prize are:
- Ariel Glucklich will discuss his book, The Joy of Religion: Exploring the Nature of Pleasure in the Spiritual Life, with Ed Larson.
- James W Jones will discuss his book, Living Religion: Embodiment, Theology and the Possibility of a Spiritual Sense, with Fraser Watts.
- Thomas Aechtner will discuss his book, Media and Science-Religion Conflict: Mass Persuasion in the Evolution Wars, with Russell Re Manning.
The date of the event is Tuesday 16th November at 14:00 on the West Coast of North America, 17:00 on the Eastern Seaboard, 22:00 in the UK, and 08:00 the next morning (17th) in Brisbane, Australia. The event will be recorded and posted on the ISSR YouTube channel and website so it can be viewed at a later time.
