Coming up! Feb 10 @ 7 pm ET on ZOOMA Christian Field Guide to Technology for Engineers and Designers – with Dr. Derek Schuurman.

This talk will draw on sections of a new book titled A Christian Field Guide to Technology for Engineers and Designers to explore responsible technology and the implications for Christian engineers and others involved in various technical disciplines.

Join Global Scholars Canada in welcoming Speaker, Dr. Derek Schuurman and Respondent, Dr. Johnathan VanderSteen for talk on technology from a Christian worldview.
