Turning the big evangelical ship around

The fact that many evangelicals are wedded to a literalist reading of the creation accounts of Genesis 1 and 2 has long been a major hermeneutical sore point for many theologians who are otherwise sympathetic with the traditionalist ethos of evangelicalism.

My current research grant comes from the BioLogos Foundation which was founded by, among others, Francis Collins, the current head of the NIH. This Atlantic Monthly article profiles an alternative theological culture that BioLogos and others are trying to grow within mainstream American evangelicalism.
