Looking for thoughtful, approachable resources on faith and science for a discussion group or personal study? ESN is thrilled to share the faith/science resources we developed through a STEAM Project grant from Fuller Seminary. They include a blog series designed to make it easy to start a faith/science discussion group, and recordings from our student/early career track at the 2017 American Scientific Affiliation conference. And stay tuned for a book version of our blog discussion guide in 2019!Â
This project was made possible through the support of an award from theÂ Science and Theology for Emerging Adult Ministries projectÂ at Fuller Theological Seminary. The opinions expressed are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of Fuller or the STEAM project.
Faith and Science Discussion Guide Series at the ESN Blog
We crowdsourced common questions about faith and science from InterVarsity grad student discussion groups on different campuses, and then we commissioned scientists and theologians in our network to write an answer to each question and provide discussion questions for small groups. Find this resource here:
Our book version is organized to make it easy to lead a thoughtful and approachable faith and science discussion group. We field tested the series above with InterVarsity groups, grad students, and InterVarsity campus ministers, then revised to make it even stronger. You can order the book from Hendrickson Publishers at the link above.
