Series: Interpreting Adam (6 entries)

A few months ago Zondervan published the anthology Four Views on the Historical Adam. This valuable new resource addresses one of the most common questions Christians have about evolution: how does the Adam of the Bible fit with the scientific and historical evidence about early humans?

 

New Videos Online from the ECF “Author of Life” Project

When you are in church, do you act and speak differently than when you are in school? Do you tend to compartmentalize what you learn about in Biology class from what you learn about in Sunday School?

 

“The Language of God” Book Club – Chapters 7-9

How can we avoid a god of the gaps situation without completely removing God from the created order? How else might we describe God’s relationship to the functioning of natural systems?

 

Series: On Creating the Cosmos, by Ted Peters (3 entries)

Last year I introduced readers to one of the leading voices about Christianity and science, John Polkinghorne. I also helped BioLogos bring in another leading voice, Robert Russell. This new series introduces a third prominent Christian thinker, Lutheran theologian Ted Peters, Research Professor Emeritus in Systematic Theology and Ethics at Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary, the Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences (http://www.ctns.org/), and the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California.

 

The Noah Movie

Russell Crowe as Noah was no superhero. He was very human—perhaps too human for those who’d prefer he remain in the flannel graph world of our Sunday School stories.

 

Series: Pasteur vs. Pouchet and the Demise of Spontaneous Generation: Lessons for Today from an Old Controversy (2 entries)

 

Is God the Creator?

Does BioLogos believe that God is the creator? Yes, all Christians believe this; the question is, how did God create?

 

Series: Science and Christianity: A Positive International Dialogue (2 entries)

There is often a worry that working in or studying science is a threat to faith, but stories of scientists who are Christians in the top ranks of academia show that this is not the case.

 

Series: “The Language of God” Book Club (6 entries)

The BioLogos Book Club discussion of Francis Collins’ The Language of God.

 

Reflections on Tyson’s Cosmos, Episode 1

Carl’s dramatic lines that opened his Cosmos were repeated in Cosmos II: “The universe is all there is, or was, or ever will be.” When I told Haines Stiles that many people took that as a statement of atheism, he responded with surprise. “Really?” he said. “We just put that in because it sounded poetic!”

 

Series: The Faith of a Great Scientist: Robert Boyle’s Religious Life, Attitudes, and Vocation (13 entries)

A deep love for scripture, coupled (ironically) with a lifelong struggle with religious doubt, led Robert Boyle to write several important books relating scientific and religious knowledge. We explore aspects of this fascinating interaction.

 

Praying the Psalms: Psalm 19

The Psalmist is saying that when we walk outside and look up, the heavens are telling us two things about God: they tell us about his glory, and they tell us about what his hands can do.

 

An Enriched Creation

Scripture gives us multiple ways of looking at things, and a classic example of this is the parables of Jesus. Many of these involve looking at nature. For example, natural events like seeds growing—and what Jesus seems to be saying is look there is a surface reading of nature—and then there is the deeper reading, where you begin to realize there are levels of meaning that we don’t pick up on our first acquaintance.

 

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.

 

Series: The Body of Christ in Science (2 entries)

 

Ham on Nye – What to Watch for

Watch to see whether the debate encourages the opinion that science and Christianity are at war. We don’t think you have to choose sides.

 

Seeing God in the Stars

As a Christian, I can’t think of a more beautiful process for God to have blessed the production of the elements that we need for life than the beauty of stars. In fact, we are told that we shine like stars in the universe.

 

Series: From the Dust (13 entries)

In this series, Ryan Pettey offers several clips from his powerful documentary "From the Dust". This feature-length film is divided up into various sections, each of which wrestles with the difficult problems that arise when reconciling Scripture with the theory of evolution. A light of hope dawns on the science-faith conversation, however, as scientists and theologians engage in honest dialogue about tough issues such as the interpretation of Genesis, the nature of the Fall, and the idea of random design. Their profound insights are sure to enlighten all minds, raise deeper questions, and provoke new thought.

 

To Tame the World: What terrifies us about reality pushes us toward its Creator.

We can understand why man, modern man in particular, would like to mop the floors and bleach the walls. We might not be able to tame reality, but we can tame our perception of reality. We intellectualize in order to feel in control.

 

Long Life Spans in Genesis

“If God wanted to make Methuselah live to be 969 years old, we certainly believe that God could intervene in the natural order of things and make that happen. The question rather—as it should be for all biblical interpretation—is whether that is really the message of the text.”
