Seward Elected Pres. of Affiliation Of Christian Biologists

Siloam Springs, Ark (August 31, 1999) — Dr. Larry Seward, Science Professor at John Brown University, was recently elected to the office of President for the Affiliation of Christian Biologist (ACB) at their annual meeting which was recently held on the campus of JBU. He will serve as President for the next three years.

"God writes the gospel not in the Bible alone but also in His mavelous creation. Therefore, we as Christian biologist have a unique opportunity to draw closer to God by trying the understand the intrices of His marvelous creation," said Dr. Seward.

The ACB is a national science organization that seeks to encourage fellowship among Christian biologists, provide an opportunity for the exchange of ideas and equipment for effective teaching, encourage networking between biologists who teach in Christian colleges and universities, provide support for those engaged in teaching and research in non-Christian contexts, and serve as a forum for discussion of problems and issues that related to the integration of biology and Christian thought.

The American Scientific Affiliation (ASA) is the parent organization of the ACB. The ACB holds its annual meeting in conjunction with the ASA meeting, which was held on the campus of John Brown University this summer and featured Nobel Prize winner Dr. William Phillips as the plenary speaker for the conference.
