The aim of the book is to do us all a service by making it clear that science, like baking and architecture, is the property of the whole human race and is not the political partner of either atheism or theism or any other religious idea.

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.

Faithful to Science: The Role of Science in Religion Book Cover[Book, 2014] by Andrew Steane, Professor of Physics at Univ. of Oxford. The author is a Christian, but his personal faith is not the emphasis here. He states in the Introduction: “The aim of the book is to do us all a service by making it clear that science, like baking and architecture, is the property of the whole human race and is not the political partner of either atheism or theism or any other religious idea. Science is a natural part of the discourse of anyone who is prepared to use their mental faculties carefully. That includes the people who think carefully and come to theistic conclusions and also the people who think carefully and come to atheistic conclusions, and positions in between.”
