Back to the Beginning: Educating Students and Parents about Evolution, Genesis, and Coexistence

Bryan College
Dr. Brian Eisenback and Dr. Kenneth Turner

This project aims to create curriculum about Christianity and science, specifically focusing on evolution and various interpretations of the Genesis account of creation. Regardless of how Christians view evolution or how they read the opening chapters of Genesis, they should seek to be informed and educated about the relevant scientific and biblical data. The curriculum will be useful for Christian schools (homeschool, high school, or college) and churches. The first half of the curriculum presents both a narrative of evolution and the supporting evidence as understood by mainstream science.  The second half summarizes the exegetical and hermeneutical issues involved in reading and interpreting Genesis, then reviews and critiques various evangelical perspectives reconciling Scripture and science.  Rather than promoting a specific “position” on creation, this study will (1) provide for a lay audience, in an intellectually honest way, the biblical, theological and scientific data that specialists are actually looking at and debating; (2) outline the strengths and weaknesses of the main positions that evangelicals take; and (3) pastorally call Christians to honesty and charity as we all wrestle together with these issues.
