“Being a Christian In…”

The “Being a Christian in…” series is written by students and professionals in collaboration to consider what it’s like to be a Christian in different scientific fields. Written with a student audience in mind, these resources are a useful encouragement to anyone considering what it is to be a Christian in their field.
