“I have seen too many young people in too many churches exposed to bad science, shoddy thinking, false claims, and the misguided idea (maybe well-intended but misguided) that somebody was defending the Bible when what they were really defending was a wrong interpretation of the Bible. Then I've watched when very often those really bright young people go off and pursue education, go to college, begin to read, and discover they were misinformed. Then they think they have to choose between the Bible and truth. You don't.” - John Ortberg, Pastor, Menlo Park Presbyterian Church
“Many people today, both secular and Christian, want us to believe that science and religion cannot live together. Not only is this untrue, but we believe that a thoughtful dialogue between science and faith is essential for engaging the hearts and minds of individuals today. The BioLogos Foundation provides an important first step towards that end." - Tim Keller, Pastor, Redeemer Church
When it comes to explaining the interaction of our faith with science, it’s one thing to read other pastors’ thoughts, but it is another thing entirely to be prepared to address your own congregations (both corporately and individually) on these topics. It’s our prayer that these materials will equip you to meaningfully engage science and faith in your local congregations so that, ultimately, the body of Christ might be built up.
