Seeing God and His Beauty in Math

I recently came across a podcast episode of “Think Biblically: Conversations on Faith and Culture,” from BIOLA University, that at this point is about a year old. The topic is seeing God and His beauty in math and the podcast guest is Jason Wilson, associate professor of mathematics at BIOLA.

I met Jason at the first conference for the Association of Christians in the Mathematical Sciences (ACMS) that I attended in 2011. I have always found Jason to be extremely thoughtful in integrating his faith with his understanding of mathematics. I hope you enjoy this podcast.
