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.

Science and Faith at the Movies: Part 1

Science and Faith at the Movies: Contact

In this series, Brian Godawa discusses Contact, a movie that portrays a harmony between science and faith in a powerful way. A classic alien encounter story, Contact examines the relationship between science and faith through the story of Ellie and concludes that harmonizing science with faith leads to happiness and balance. Godawa takes the premise of Contact and draws from it a discussion of the interplay between transcendent meaning and an imminent universe.
