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.

This website houses numerous (freely downloadable) teaching activities that create space for students to meaningfully engage the sometimes challenging intersections between their faith and scientific claims. Activities have varying lengths and are meant to be used as supplements to other course curricula in a Bible or science class. Each activity is a stand-alone resource so teachers or homeschooling parents can select whichever materials fit their current needs.

These resources touch on more than origins controversies. You will find discussion of virtues that come into play in science, motivations behind doing science, how to think through ethical questions that arise, how students can cultivate wonder in the process, and more. For ease of use, activities are grouped under the following headings: The Bible, Biology, Chemistry, Meta-Questions, Other Sciences, Physics, and Relationships.
