Dr. George Keller, a senior fellow with the Samford University Center for Science and Religion, spoke yesterday at the First Presbyterian Church of Charleston, West Virginia on the topic of near-death experiences. Keller's talk addressed issues such as scientific and religious perspectives on the relationship between soul and body, possible explanations for near-death phenomena, and the relationship between science and religion in general.
