Steve Jones: Where Science Meets the Bible

Steve Jones

Science and faith are often viewed as mutually exclusive, but both are concerned with life’s most profound mysteries. Steve Jones, the world-famous geneticist, evolutionist and environmentalist, is an authority on snails, flies and people. In his latest book, The Serpent’s Promise, he reinterprets the Bible in light of modern science and, just possibly, finds answers to the epic questions that have intrigued us through the centuries.

Steve Jones is Professor Emeritus of Genetics at UCL. A regular broadcaster, he has written many books on popular science. He is the winner of the Royal Society Faraday Medal and has delivered the BBC Reith Lectures.

Sponsored by Dr Naim Dangoor CBE Founder of the Exilarch’s Foundation
