Evangelizing Through Science in a Culture Longing for Truth
We live in a time when we can engage the public through science, leading people to ask the biggest scientific question of all: “Who made all of this?” Rather than rejecting science because it might pose difficult questions, Catholics can evangelize through science.
Particles of Faith: How Science Led Me to Christ
I have always loved science and left behind faith to pursue it. In graduate school, I had my comeuppance standing before an old gingko biloba tree during my time researching artificial photosynthesis. In the search for truth, I realized that my love of science had been a search for God all along. Granting assent to the articles of faith was the most satisfying leap I ever made as a scientist and, more importantly, as a person.
