National Geographic’s first ever scripted series GENIUS takes Einstein’s story beyond the halls of academia to explore his struggles to be a good husband and father, and a man of principle during a period of global unrest. His daringly creative mind often landed him in trouble with his loved ones and peers, but also helped him to usher in groundbreaking discoveries that reshaped modern science.

How did faith fit in this remarkable life? That’s what Patheos writers are here to explore, along with the relationship between faith and science in this exclusive symposium. Be sure to tune into GENIUS on National Geographic starting April 25!
