Dr. Kevin Timpe, along with Dr. Timothy Paul, assistant professor of philosophy at The University of St. Thomas in Minn., has been awarded funding in the amount of $41,059. from the Immortality Project at the University of California, Riverside. These funds are made possible by the John Templeton Foundation, a philanthropic foundation that is committed to supporting research related to the “Big Questions” of human purpose and reality.

Drs. Timpe and Paul will specifically be exploring the concept of the interim state, or the time between death and resurrection. Their project consists primarily of a workshop to be held in McCall, Idaho, attended by professional philosophers and theologians as well as five graduate students from across both disciplines, where the participants’ research will be presented. They will create an environment in which theologians and philosophers can unite in their pursuit to better understand the interim state and facilitate conversation between the two disciplines. After the workshop, a public presentation summarizing the workshop’s research will be given at NNU the summer of 2015.
