Matthew Groves is a "one man science-religion reconciliation committee," NPR Philadelphia

 

In an age of conflict, I help the scientific and Christian communities get along. Using my unique background as a physics major, a seminary student, and a Christian from rural Appalachia, I work as a science educator for Christians.

 

I've been featured on NPR's All Things Considered, teach Sunday School classes and youth groups, and write about climate change and other science and faith topics.
