Description

Although science is widely acknowledged to have grown out of Christian assumptions about the integrity and trustworthiness of creation, many Christians have found evolutionary descriptions of the process of creation problematic. This series draws on a number of Christian scholars (including scientists and theologians) in order to illuminate both on how "evolution" can be for some a description of God's activity, and for others an alternative to God. Lectures Include:

  • What is the Issue?
  • A Case for Design
  • The Problem with "Fingerprinting God"
  • Creator and Creation: A Biblical Perspective
  • Creator and Creation: A Theological Perspective
