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.

Evolution and the Deep Resonances between Science and Theology, Part 1

Deep Resonance Series

Michael L. Peterson delves into the theological compatibility of the Christian faith with the theory of evolution. To accomplish this task, he discusses several big-picture themes within the Christian faith as established by the early Christian Fathers: the Trinity, God’s kenotic nature, and the doctrine of creation. He then presents some of the major themes—chance, inter-connectivity, the fine-tuning of the universe, etc.—that emerge from the various disciplines of contemporary science.

There is, indeed, a strangeness to what we know scientifically about ourselves and our place in the universe.

Deep Resonances between Science and Theology, Part 6

The Father’s engendering love for the Son calls creation into life through the power of the Holy Spirit. The indwelling Spirit, then, permeates the entire cosmos—every atom, super nova, and biological form—with life-giving energy.
