You’re invited to join us on Feb. 21 at 6pm for dinner and a live recording event of BioLogo’s Language of God Podcast  with BioLogos board member, Praveen Sethupathy, Professor of Biomedical Sciences and Director of the Center for Vertebrate Genomics at Cornell University, in conversation with guest Molly Worthen, associate professor of history at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a freelance journalist.

“Molly Worthen was a well known historian, specializing in United States religious history. Her book, Apostles of Reason: The Crisis of Authority in American Evangelicalism was a critical appraisal of Evangelism’s lack of centralized authority and the conflicts that ensue from that. But then in an interesting twist, she herself converted to Christianity, after long exploratory conversations with people like Tim Keller and Francis Collins. Also important to her faith journey was Praveen Sethupathy, who himself converted to Christianity from his Hindu upbringing. In this conversation we will explore these faith journeys.

Language of God is a podcast produced by BioLogos that explores issues related to science and Christian faith, featuring the voices of experts & thinkers, scientists & theologians, and stories from people who are finding a harmony between faith and science.”

“This event is sponsored by BioLogos and hosted by the L. Russ Bush Center for Faith and Culture.”
