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 collection of essays will help you explore many of the questions that arise at the intersection of faith and science.

Leith Anderson, president of the National Association of Evangelicals, describes the difficulty of engaging in meaningful conversation that respects both.

  • As laypersons we sometimes wonder if we know enough about science or religion to ask the right questions of either.
  • As scientists we may welcome serious conversations but wonder if others tilt more toward controversy or more toward truth.
  • As pastors we often keep silent on science, because we don’t know what to say or because we don’t want to engage or escalate unwanted debates.
