Peace Be With You

Almost two thousand years ago, God made Himself known to all people. In this event, a good God reorders the entire world.

Reworking the Science of Adam

This last year, 2017 till now, we have been reworking the science of Adam. This brings us several new ways to think about Adam and Eve in human origins.

On April 12, 2017, I gave an invited lecture with Dr. Ken Cuffey at Urbana Seminary, reviewing the book by Scot McKnight and Dennis Venema, Adam and the Genome. This book is important. There is much with which to agree. However, I depart from them on their main thesis, that both science and theology are ambivalent…
