About The Author of Life

Our team of a biology instructor and a school chaplain in conjunction with 9th AVENUE Studios will produce a multimedia curricula for Christian high school students. This series will encourage students to think about the relationship between their faith in the God of the Bible and the process of Evolution. Through short films and written curricula, we hope to facilitate discussion on this important topic.

We are presenting an integrated view of origins, understanding the uniqueness of mankind. Our hope is to reassure students that the study of science is compatible with their faith and can enhance and deepen their relationship with God; students should come away with a greater sense of awe for God’s creation, and a deeper assurance that God cares very much about the details of their own life.
