The Authors

Dr. Hugh Ross

Astronomer Hugh Ross is founder and president of Reasons to Believe, an organization dedicated to demonstrating the compatibility of science and Christianity. Hugh earned his BS in physics from the University of British Columbia and his MS and PhD in astronomy from the University of Toronto. He later continued research on quasars and galaxies as a postdoctoral fellow at Caltech. While in college, Hugh dedicated himself to faith in Christ following an in-depth study of Scripture that convinced him of the Bible’s factual accuracy. Today, Hugh is the author of multiple books (such as Why the Universe Is the Way It Is, More Than a Theory,and, most recently, Navigating Genesis) and speaks on science-faith issues to audiences around the world.

Dr. Fazale Rana

Biochemist Fazale (Fuz) Rana serves as vice president of research and apologetics at Reasons to Believe. He earned a PhD in chemistry with an emphasis in biochemistry at Ohio University and conducted postdoctoral research of cell membranes at the Universities of Virginia and Georgia. He spent seven years as a senior scientist at Procter & Gamble and has coauthored articles published in several peer-reviewed journals. Fuz converted to Christianity during graduate school after he began questioning chemical evolution’s ability to account for the elegance of biochemical systems. Today, he is author of multiple books, including Creating Life in the Lab and The Cell’s Design, and speaks on evidence for creation from biochemistry, genetics, and human origins.

Dr. Jeff Zweerink

Astrophysicist Jeff Zweerink is research scholar and executive director of online learning at Reasons to Believe. He earned a BS in physics and a PhD in astrophysics with a focus on gamma rays from Iowa State University. Before joining RTB in 2005, Jeff spent much time working on the STACEE and VERITAS gamma-ray telescopes and was involved in research projects such as the Solar Two Project and the Whipple Collaboration. A Christian from childhood, Jeff struggled to reconcile his love of science and his faith until a lecture by RTB founder Hugh Ross convinced Jeff that integration of science and faith is possible. Today, Jeff is coauthor of the Impact Events student devotionals and speaks on the evidence for creation from exoplanets and multiverse theory. He is also a research physicist at UCLA.

  • Hidden Treasures in the Book of Job

    Arguably the oldest book in the Bible, the book of Job has a surprising amount to say about some of the newest scientific discoveries and controversies. With careful consideration and exegesis, Hugh Ross shows that the Bible is an accurate predictor of scientific discoveries, and that both the book of Scripture and the book of nature are consistent both internally and externally.
  • Creating Life in the Lab

    Representing the best of RTB's efforts to anticipate scientific breakthroughs and explain their contribution to the case for Christian faith, biochemist Fuz Rana shows how recent advances in synthetic biology actually undermine the evolutionary explanation for the origin of life. Creating Life in the Lab addresses the scientific, theological, and philosophical aspects on both the dangers and promises of synthetic biology.
  • If God Made the Universe…Why Is It the Way It Is?

    Drawing from his popular book Why the Universe Is the Way It Is, Dr. Hugh Ross shares Scripture, stunning satellite photos, and the most recent scientific findings to explain the great love story that is our universe. This DVD series invites you to be a part of Dr. Ross’ small group. Each session includes a brief presentation (about 20 minutes), followed by Q&A.
  • Impact Events: The Earth

    In this unique student devotional, astrophysicist Jeff Zweerink and seasoned small-group leader Ken Hultgren connect little-known facts about our planet with faith-building insights about the Creator. The booklet includes practical, yet thought-provoking questions to help students apply each lesson’s principles to their lives. This Impact Events series is designed to transform your life and faith with truth from God’s Word and evidence from God’s world. God wants to impact your life. Will you let Him?
