For homeschoolers, teachers, students, parents and school administrators

Who is BioLogos?

Check out our mission statement and beliefs and the BioLogos Basics videos to learn more.

Introduction

If you are looking for educational resources that teach mainstream science and/or present a fruitful dialogue between science and the Bible, here are some resources worth exploring. Some of those featured are from BioLogos, some from like-minded organizations, and others from places around the web. We periodically update this page, so check back regularly to see what's new!

We welcome your feedback and questions. Contact us at ed.resources@biologos.org.

Talk with other parents and teachers



Come join us on the BioLogos Homeschool Forum. While it is primarily meant for homeschool parents, it has become an important meeting place for many others looking for community, ideas, and advice about educating from an evolutionary creationist perspective. We hope you’ll feel welcome and stimulated by the discussions that take place there.

Stephen Freeland, Astrobiologist and the Director of Interdisciplinary Studies at UMBC

As a Christian and an evolutionary biologist, I support with enthusiasm the work of BioLogos as part of my personal commitment to nurture dialog (dia-Logos!) between science and the Christian faith. I identify most strongly with the organization’s eleventh article of belief (“What we believe”): We believe that conversations among Christians about controversial issues of science and faith can and must be conducted with humility, grace, honesty, and compassion as a visible sign of the Spirit’s presence in Christ’s body, the Church.
