Evolution and the Christian Faith – Theistic Evolution in the Light of Scripture

10,95

Debate over the opening chapters of Genesis has continued for over a century and a half since Charles Darwin advanced his revolutionary ideas. Arguments that once raged between liberals and evangelicals are now mainstream evangelical debates. Was there a historical Adam and Eve? An actual Fall (original sin)? What about suffering? And how did the New Testament writers, including the Lord Jesus Christ himself, treat Genesis? Does theistic evolution enhance our understanding of origins and Christian doctrine? Or does it hinder it as some maintain? This book sets out to explore these questions in detail. It assesses the impact of evolutionary thinking in society at large and whether or not theistic evolution is compatible with core Christian doctrines.
