I hope that this message reaches the body of Christ in broader ways as working at a Christian University far too often surprises locals that we have a science program! From the article I especially appreciated this part:

By comparing scientific and biblical stories, the authors show that science is a deeply human activity, not limited to the last three hundred years of history. The biblical account, in fact, invites us to seek wisdom by exploring the world around us. We learn that Christians are well-equipped to follow the evidence wherever it leads, even when that involves a painful change of mind. They are ready to persevere through the often painful process of discovery, and seek restoration in the world. They are familiar with the wonder of overall order emerging from chaos, and are encouraged by the Bible to keep asking questions and searching for answers.
