IUP will host a program with coauthors Carl Peraino and James W. Sire based on their book Deepest Differences: A Christian-Atheist Dialogue on October 6, 2009, at 8:00 p.m. in the Eberly College of Business and Information Technology auditorium.

The presentation is free and open to the community.

Peraino is a retired senior biochemist at Argonne National Laboratory and a noted cancer researcher. Sire is an author and former senior editor at Intervarsity Press.

The program is designed to offer a civil discussion of the deepest differences between a dedicated scientist and a devout Christian.

The program is sponsored by the Committee for the Study of Culture and Religion in cooperation with the Department of Religious Studies and the Religious Studies Club.
