Fazale Rana

Dr. Fazale Rana, PhD (Ohio University), Vice President of Research and Apologetics at Reasons to Believe, became a Christian as a graduate student studying biochemistry. The cell’s complexity, elegance, and sophistication coupled with the inadequacy of evolutionary scenarios to account for life’s origin compelled him to conclude that life must stem from a Creator. Reading through the Sermon on the Mount convinced Him that Jesus was who Christians claimed Him to be:  Lord and Savior. Still, evangelism wasn’t important to him – until his father died. His death helped him to appreciate how vital evangelism is. It was at that point he dedicated himself to Christian apologetics and the use of science as a tool to build bridges with nonbelievers. In 1999, he left his position in R&D at a Fortune 500 company to join Reasons to Believe because he felt that the most important thing he could do as a scientist is to communicate to skeptics and believers alike the powerful scientific evidence – evidence that is being uncovered day after day – for God’s existence and the reliability of Scripture.
