Science and Faith Resources

 "The Bible and science are not out of harmony with each other….. when the heart is responsive to God, the mind is usually without prejudice to investigate all facts in search of the truth."

1923. Dr. S. Brooks, president of Baylor University, report to the Baptist General Convention of Texas in response to criticisms on the teaching of evolution at Baylor.

We in the Biology Department are persons of science and faith.  Sometimes we are asked by individuals outside of science how we integrate our faith and our careers in science.  For this reason we offer this list of references as a starting point for others to learn about the many ways scientists integrate a life of faith and science.
