What do you get when you mix Buddhist Japanese parents, weekly Christian private school, and a mind for theoretical physics? The answer is Michio Kaku. Steeped in two religious traditions, Kaku has a deep awareness of the reality and power not only of religious influences but also scientific realities. This sensitivity to both science and religion has made Kaku one of the most brilliant and sought-after astrophysicists in the world. Remarkably, Kaku will speak at Bethel on January 27 at 7pm. 

As an American theoretical physicist, futurist, and science communicator, Kaku is a professor of theoretical physics at the City College of New York. A New York Times Best-Selling author, he is the author of several books including Physics of the Impossible (2008), Physics of the Future (2011), The Future of the Mind (2014), and The God Equation: The Quest for a Theory of Everything (2021). 

Able to put scientific concepts into common understanding, Kaku has hosted several television specials for the BBC, the Discovery Channel, the History Channel, and the Science Channel and appeared on many programs and networks, including Good Morning America, The Screen Savers, Larry King Live, 60 Minutes, Imus In The Morning, Nightline, 20/20, Naked Science, CNN, ABC News, CBS News, NBC News, Al Jazeera English, Fox News Channel, The History Channel, Conan, TLC, Countdown with Keith Olbermann, The Colbert Report, Coast to Coast AM, BBC World News America, Late Show with David Letterman, and Real Time with Bill Maher. Kaku’s parents were Buddhists but he attended a Christian private school and brings tremendous insights into the nature of the relationship between faith and religion. 

This event is made possible by a generous grant of the Bethel Endowment Foundation.
