I sat next to Professor Andrew Briggs, a Professor of Nanomaterials, who happened to be a Christian. He responded, “Do you really want to sit on the fence forever?

During dinner, Briggs asked me whether I believed in God. ” That question made me realise that if issues about human value and ethics mattered to me, the response that perhaps there was a God, or perhaps there wasn’t, was unsatisfactory.

Moreover, God wants broken people, not self-righteous ones.With an awkward but humble reluctance, I opened a book of sermons by philosopher and theologian Paul Tillich.As I read, I was struck at how intellectually compelling, complex, and profound the gospel was. A few months later, near the end of my time at Oxford, I was invited to a dinner for the International Society for the Study of Science and Religion.With the freedom of being an outsider to American culture, I was able to see an active Christianity in people who lived their lives guided by the gospel: feeding the homeless every week, running community centres, and housing and advocating for migrant farm laborers.In the Summer of 2008, I began a new job as Assistant Professor at Florida State University, where I continued my research examining the relationship between the history of science, Christianity, and political thought.
