This summer, many of us are going on fewer trips, and so let’s see where excellent reading in faith and science can take us.
Each week, we share a few links that we believe will help you better understand a particular theme and engage with it in your ministry. Normally, we direct you to short-form material. We know most of you have too many places to go to dedicate more than 5, maybe 10 minutes on a link. But we hope that the arrival of summer means some time for books, longer videos, or full length podcasts.

Jesus, Beginnings, and Science presents twelve guided discussions for Bible study groups.

Written by David and Kate Vosberg (a chemistry professor and a campus pastor), the book helps guide conversations on creation, human origins, and what the Bible has to say about science.
