    Philip Yancey | Pain and Healing

    Philip Yancey | Pain and Healing

    Philip Yancey returns to the podcast to dig deeper into his many years spent traveling and writing with Dr. Paul Brand and learning about the marvel of the human body. What we can learn from the human body—about the importance of pain, about healing and unity—can also be applied to the body of Christ. In doing so, we find relevance with many of today’s issues including the coronavirus and the need for the church to find unity among racial tensions. 
    Philip Yancey, author of books like Disappointment with God, The Jesus I Never Knew, and What’s So Amazing About Grace, is one of the best selling Christian authors alive today. His most recent book is an updated collaboration with Dr Brand called Fearfully and Wonderfully: The Marvel of Bearing God’s Image. Yancey lives in Colorado as a freelance writer and avid hiker.

    Joseph Graves | The Genetics of Race (Part 2)

    Joseph Graves | The Genetics of Race (Part 2)

    There is probably no one who has done more scientific work on the genetics of race than Dr. Joseph L Graves. Dr. Graves has been writing, thinking, and doing research on this topic for almost 30 years. In the midst of a national uprising of anger and frustration at the continued systemic racism in this country and around the world, this conversation probes the scientific reality that there is no genetic basis for race and addresses some common misconceptions as well. 
    We split our conversation up into two parts. In this second part of the conversation we dig into the genetic sciences and we talk about some common misconceptions, such as whether race affects athletic abilities and what you can actually find out from genetic ancestry testing.

    We split our conversation up into two parts. In this first part Dr. Graves tells the story of his journey through higher education, which was not without hardships. Then, as a precursor to talking about the genetics, we discuss some basics of evolution and what it even means to be a species or a subspecies.

So so good

I’m so grateful that I stumbled upon this podcast. Finding a place where Christians are free to discuss science, biblical interpretation, and moral issues is so important. I believe the BioLogos perspective will be integral in christians having any sort of influence in the intellectual arena, so keep up the amazing work!

yoummooo ,

I love these and blending of science and spiritual issues. It’s not one or the other. Way to go guys. Shalom

Refreshing

This podcast has been a breath of fresh air for me. It skillfully blends science and faith in a way that does not devalue either topic. I finally feel like I can believe the Bible and science without holding contradictions in my mind.
