Carolyn Arends recently wrote an article in Christianity Today that we thought our readers would appreciate. In it, she writes about a difficult conversation that many Christian parents have with their kids. It’s the conversation about creation—we believe God made the heavens and the earth, but did God really do it in seven literal days? If God used natural selection as one of His creative processes—does that mean that humans really evolved from monkeys? How does it change the way we read the Bible, if we choose to accept the conclusions of modern science?
These are tough questions, and Arends provides some helpful insight on how she’s handled them with her own kids.
