Welcome! The Prism and the Rainbow (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2010) is a book I wrote to help dispel the notion that an understanding and acceptance of modern science, including evolutionary biology, is in conflict with the Christian faith. I am a scientist who studies and conducts research in the general field of evolutionary biology, and I am also an ordained elder in the Presbyterian Church USA, where I work with the high school youth ministry. The book is aimed primarily at young adults and their parents who are looking for helpful information on the issue of science and faith, and my hope is that it might prove useful for discussion groups in school and church settings. This site provides information about the book, including purchasing information, details about the title and cover, the publisher’s description, and endorsements. You can also contact me for additional information or for speaking engagements.
