In this video, video, theologian Chris Tilling, New Testament Tutor for St. Mellitus College and St Paul's Theological Centre in London, discusses biblical genre and the relational truth of Scripture.

A wise, constructive rapprochement between faith and science is one of the world’s urgent needs, and this need will only intensify as the global era raises a host of new ethical issues. Few people have the expertise, wisdom, and prestige to make such a contribution. I welcome BioLogos warmly.
