Better Science for the Clergy? PBS Discusses Science in Seminaries

Entry written by the BioLogos Editorial Team

Pastors may be interested in science, but they often get little exposure to science in their training. Recently, the PBS program Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly featured a discussion of science training for religious leaders. The program focused on Science for Seminaries, a new project of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), which is supporting the efforts of several pilot seminaries to integrate better science exposure in the training of future pastors. On the show, several professors and students (including BioLogos Board member Jennifer Wiseman) discuss their thoughts on why science is important in the seminary environment.

By providing books, online resources, and digital media of high quality, BioLogos is an invaluable resource in my work with both Christian students and those investigating Christianity. In BioLogos, students see modeled before them a Psalm 19 way of thinking: that both God’s world and his word declare his glory.
