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.

A Faith Journey in a Medical Science Career, Part 1

In particular, I was interested in pursuing a career in paleontology or ecology, and I became even more convinced in college, that I had to make a profound choice – either I chose a career in science and reject YEC claims that had no basis in reality, or I would have to abandon a science career all together.

A Faith Journey in a Medical Science Career, Part 2

Here is the issue that keeps me up at night: I have been an active church member for many years, but I fear for the future of the church and its youth. As a member of several churches during my moves across the country, I have seen ignorance and fear of science in many congregations.

A Faith Journey in a Medical Science Career, Part 3

In the first part of my essay, I made the argument that one can be a scientist, physician, pastor, or layperson and have no problems with evolution, an ancient universe, or other scientific ideas in respect to one’s Christian faith. I now want to explore some of the interesting aspects of my work as a clinical pediatric gastroenterologist.

A Faith Journey in a Medical Science Career, Part 4

I would like to conclude my essay with a plea. Readers of BioLogos are well aware that many Christians working in science (whether as scientists, physicians, engineers, or as science teachers in our children’s schools) read the site to connect with others who also believe that there is no issue reconciling their scientific discipline with their faith.
