ASA - The American Scientific Affiliation: A Network of Christians in Science
The American Scientific Affiliation, or ASA, was founded in 1941 as an international network of Christians in the sciences. As scientists, members of the ASA take part in humanity’s exploration of nature, its laws, and how it works. As Christians, ASA members want to know not just how the universe operates and came into being, but why it exists in the first place.
ASA's unique mission is to integrate, communicate, and facilitate properly researched science and theology in service to the Church and the scientific community. ASA members are confident that such a goal is not only possible but necessary for an adequate understanding of God and Nature. Additionally, the ASA is committed to advising churches and our society in how best to employ science and technology while preserving the integrity of God's creation.
In the section “Resources in Science and Christian Faith” there is research material on different topics (readings, audio recordings, and videos).
The website offers an electronic magazine, God and Nature, which is published twice a month.
