Before You Read

Dear reader,

We’ll get right to it: Young people today are departing the faith in historic numbers as the church is either unwilling or unable to address their questions on science and faith. BioLogos is hosting those tough conversations. Not with anger, but with grace. Not with a simplistic position to earn credibility on the left or the right, but a message that is informed, faithful, and hopeful.

Although voices on both sides are loud and extreme, we are breaking through. But as a nonprofit, we rely on the generosity of donors like you to continue this challenging work. Your tax deductible gift today will help us continue to counter the polarizing narratives of today with a message that is informed, hopeful, and faithful.

For K-8: Elemental Science provides lesson plans and teaching schedules, while relying on outside books (published by Usborne, DK and others) for the bulk of the science content. Elemental Science offers either a classical or living books approach to teaching science. Though the author is a Christian, she does not include a religious viewpoint in the materials. Elemental Science includes books that come from an evolutionary standpoint.

For high school: Elemental Science offer live online courses in biology and physical science.  These courses are two semester courses which meet twice weekly (beginning in August and running through December and then picking up for the second semester in January) with a live teacher in a classroom and lecture/discussion time. The course also includes homework, quizzes, and tests which are graded and the student receives a semester course grade for their work.
