In this series Jim walks through three of the challenges posed by science.  The challenge of pain and suffering is a crucia ..read more

164. The Gift of Food | Eating Meat (part 4)
Language of God
by BioLogos

As creatures that must eat to live, human life is dependent on taking the lives of other creatures. In this episode, we explore ethics, science, and theology behind taking the lives of animals who become our food. In the process, we meet some of the animals and some of the people who raise them. We end up with at least as many questions as when we started and yet we also find a richer appreciation for the ways in which we are connected to other creatures through eating.  This is part four of a five part mini-series. Learn more about the series and find related resources at biologos.org/th ..read more
