Dr. Jason Lisle

Founder, Biblical Science Institute

Dr. Jason Lisle is a Christian astrophysicist who researches issues pertaining to science and the Christian Faith and is the founder of the Biblical Science Institute. A popular speaker and author, Dr. Lisle presents a rational defense of a literal Genesis, showing how science confirms the history recorded in the Bible. Brought up in a Christian family, at a young age he received Christ as Lord. Since then Lisle has always desired to serve the Lord out of love and gratitude for salvation and to spread the Gospel message to all people.


Dr. Lisle double-majored in physics and astronomy with a minor in mathematics at Ohio Wesleyan University. He then went on to obtain a Master’s degree and Ph.D. in astrophysics at the University of Colorado in Boulder. There, he used the SOHO spacecraft to analyze the surface of the sun and made a number of interesting discoveries, including the detection of giant cell boundaries. Since then, Lisle has worked in full-time apologetics ministry. He wrote a number of planetarium shows for the Creation Museum, including the popular “Created Cosmos.” Dr. Lisle has authored a number of best-selling books on the topic of creation, including Taking Back Astronomy, Stargazer’s Guide to the Night Sky, The Ultimate Proof of Creation, Discerning Truth, and Understanding Genesis.
