For those involved in campus ministry, we have collected some top resources to help in your own thinking about faith and the science of origins as well as materials that can be useful tools as you work with others. You will find articles, books, and videos by BioLogos and others.

But first, maybe you need more background on who BioLogos is.

Or, you’re looking for some (fairly) short answers to specific questions that often come up when people begin to think about the science of origins and biblical faith.

  • Visit our Common Questions page where you’ll find discussion on many important questions such as why should Christians consider evolutionary creation, or questions about God’s action in the natural world, the fossil and genetic evidence for evolution, interpretation of Genesis 1 - 2, the first humans, and more. Each article contains further links to BioLogos resources on that topic.

Denis Alexander, Emeritus Director of The Faraday Institute for Science and Religion

BioLogos is carrying out an incredibly valuable task in seeking to build bridges between science and faith, and helping Christians and others to engage with the theory of evolution in an informed way. When Christians have questions about creation and evolution, the BioLogos web-site is where I suggest they go for help.
