i About the BioLogos Forum

The BioLogos Forum is designed to foster a serious and comprehensive discussion of Christian faith and the sciences. We believe that charitable engagement of different perspectives within the Church helps sharpen our thinking and deepen our commitment to the truth that is hidden in Christ. So while many of the articles and videos under the distinctive Forum banner come from BioLogos staff and Senior Fellows, we feature a range of voices, including those that disagree with us and with each other. Unless otherwise noted, views expressed are those of the authors, not necessarily of The BioLogos Foundation. You can read more about what we believe here, and join the conversation in the comments section at the end of each post.

Still Surprised by Easter

Still Surprised by Easter

We now take for granted an understanding of the Christian story that was largely worked out by Paul and later theologians. Even though the Gospels were composed after Paul’s letters, they were concerned to tell the story itself in all its strangeness as it had been preserved by the first generation of Christians. And what we find in the stories themselves is the shock and wonder and surprise that the resurrection caused.

Not All Doctrines Are Equal—Configuring Adam and Eve

Not All Doctrines Are Equal—Configuring Adam and Eve

Sometimes, out of fear or some sense of being required to defend our position, Church leaders and teachers have hastily set up a boundary marker around some doctrinal theory which they have confused as a core doctrinal issue.

Nazarenes Exploring Origins Conference

Nazarenes Exploring Origins Conference

As people came together for real conversations, they actually listened to one another, which is not always common in the kind of controversial topics we were exploring—topics about origins, evolution, and biblical interpretation.

The Body of Christ in Science, Part 2

The Body of Christ in Science, Part 2

If we believe that God has distributed gifts throughout the Body of Christ, then we are unwise not to heed the thoughtful conclusions of our sisters and brothers in Christ with gifts in science. If the overwhelming number of these faithful and sincere followers of Jesus say evolution is true, then we honor the Body of Christ by heeding them.

The Body of Christ in Science, Part 1

I began to read John's gospel again–I’d read it before as literature–but this time knowing that I was reading a forthright attempt by regular people to report on what Jesus had said and done. It was not long before I realized that the God whom I encountered in the written texts about Jesus was the same God now calling me.

“The Language of God” Book Club – Chapter 3

What if they can develop an empirically sound explanation for how our universe originated? Does this rule God out of the picture? Or does it merely push things back one more step?

Ham on Nye: Our Take

Ham on Nye: Our Take

So who won? How did it go? Our response to the debate is not a blow-by-blow of the arguments made but rather a series of “big picture” reflections by BioLogos scholars.

Reflections on the “Non-Negotiable” God of the Road to Damascus

Reflections on the “Non-Negotiable” God of the Road to Damascus

There was nothing about my experiences on Oct. 20 or the God I’d met that day that intimated to me that he harbored a particular abhorrence for evolution or any scientific theory. I wonder how often we do stuff like that: add things to our list of divine “non-negotiables” that really reflect nothing of the God we experienced when he first welcomed us into his family as a free gift of grace.

Did God Have Any Choice When He Made the World?

Did God Have Any Choice When He Made the World?

Theological ideas about divine freedom and human reason were important reasons for adopting an intellectually modest, empirical approach to nature during the Scientific Revolution. The common picture of ongoing, inevitable conflict between science and religion is not only false, but perverse, for it prevents us from seeing the kinds of deep connections [between the two].

How To Talk to Family About Evolution

How To Talk to Family About Evolution

…because accepting evolutionary theory for the first time does require us to reconsider and reframe other aspects of our cultural and spiritual beliefs, we must be more caring about the way we interact with those who remain in disagreement with us.
