World-renowned geneticist Francis Collins began his opening speech much in the same way he founded BioLogos 10 years ago: with a letter he had received from a Christian experiencing a crisis between their faith and modern science. He pointed the individual (who was writing from Nigeria!) to the BioLogos website. “More than ever,” said Collins, “The world needs to hear the synthesis of science and faith is possible.”
Over 400 people were able to experience just that at the 2019 BioLogos Conference in Baltimore, March 27-29, packing the venue to hear a broad range of compelling topics at the nexus of modern science and biblical faith.
