This study was published Smyth & Helwys Books. It provides Christians scriptural considerations and scholarly information on some of the most fundamental, modern scientific concepts (creation, evolution, conservation, and transhumanism) so that both science and faith will be seen as critical components of a flourishing life. This guide is meant to be an instrument for faith communities to become places where scientific engagement is welcome rather than ignored or feared.
This study is divided into 5 sessions, each featuring Bible verses that can be used to provide insight into modern scientific topics and background information on the topics from scientists, theologians, and philosophers that includes numerous references and footnotes if individuals desire more in-depth study. Questions for discussion are provided at the end of each chapter to foster collective learning. Whereas there are no quick or easy answers for topics raised in these sessions, it is hoped that the scientific information provided and scriptures to consider will provide insight.
While an individual could do this study alone, each session is intended to be studied in a group setting. It is recommended that individuals read each chapter prior to the session and then gather for collective discussion and learning. YouTube videos and PowerPoint slides are available if desired.
Dear BioLogos reader ...
In the escalating vitriol in our culture, “science” and “faith” have found each other on opposite sides of a polarized divide. Truth and community are under attack.
If there is one thing the pandemic has shown us, it is what science can and cannot do. Scientists and doctors have done amazing things during the pandemic—identified the virus, treated the disease, and developed safe vaccines that work.
But in these polarized times, science can’t reduce anger, forgive sins, build mutual respect, or fill us with compassion for others.
Science alone can’t give us hope. Faith can. Join BioLogos today in reaching a world desperate for hope. Your tax-deductible donation will be the difference between someone encountering misinformation, or a thoughtful, truthful, and hopeful Christian perspective that shows faith and science working hand in hand.
