He was the founding editor of Science & Theology News, the leading publication in its field until it ceased publication in 2006, and editor-in-chief of Science & Spirit magazine from 2003-2006. He has published over a hundred articles, reviews, and essays, both technical and popular, and written four books: Worlds Apart: The Unholy War Between Science and Religion (1993), Species of Origins: America's Search for a Creation Story (2002, with Don Yerxa), Oracles of Science: Celebrity Scientists Versus God and Religion (2007, with Mariano Artigas), and Saving Darwin: How to Be a Christian and Believe in Evolution (2008).

He has given invited lectures on science and religion at many venues, including Oxford University, the Etore Majorana Center in Sicily, as well as colleges and universities in the United States. His primary research focus is the history and sociology of the creation-evolution controversy and in 2006 he lectured at the Vatican on "America's Ongoing Hostility to Darwinism." Saving Darwin was recognized by the Washington Post as a “Best of 2008” book.


Dr. Giberson has been on the faculty of Eastern Nazarene College since 1984, where he teaches interdisciplinary honors seminars and the history of science. He is also the director of the Forum on Faith and Science at Gordon College, and co-director of the Venice Summer School on Science & Religion.

Dear Michael: Thank you so much for your candid and probing response; it is most illuminating.
