JUNE 7: Christians & SCIENCE Bishop James Stanton Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas INTRO: Many believe that science and faith conflict. At times this belief has created great tension, such as during the Texas Board of Education’s textbook review process. Still, others believe that science and faith compliment one another. The Rt. Rev. Dr. James M. Stanton, who has studied faith and science for years, offers us his perspectives on a topic that has challenged many. ABOUT THE BISHOP: Bishop James Monte Stanton was consecrated the sixth bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas March 6, 1993. A strong advocate of biblical authority, Bishop Stanton is actively involved in reasserting traditional values of Christian faith, order, and morality at the national church level while strengthening mission and evangelism ministries throughout the diocese. He is also a frequent guest columnist in The Dallas Morning News and has been interviewed about national church issues in Newsweek, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times and on ABC World News Tonight, 20/20 and other television and radio programs. A native of Atchison, Kansas, Bishop Stanton graduated from Chapman University in Southern California. After college he pursued ordination in the Disciples of Christ and attended Lexington Theological Seminary in Kentucky. He transferred to the Southern California School of Theology, where he graduated with a D. Min. degree in 1975. He spent a year in further study at the Church of the Divinity School of the Pacific and was ordained to the Episcopal diaconate in Los Angeles in 1977. In October 1977, he was ordained to the priesthood.
