2017 BioLogos Conference Plenary Session Videos

When I shared notes from Heather Goodman's live blogging of the 2017 BioLogos Christ and Creation conference in Houston, Texas, I expressed my hope that a record of the conference would shortly be available. Thankfully, BioLogos have made available the plenary sessions so those unable to attend will be able to see leading scientists and Biblical scholars show how to understand Christianity in the light of the fact of evolution.

Given the regrettable hold YEC, fundamentalism, and a deep-seated hostility towards science have on our community, informed scholarly discussion on this subject is difficult at best to find, which is what makes this material so valuable for us. I trust that this material will find a receptive audience among those looking for answers but who to date have not had their questions acknowledged, let alone addressed.
