Series: Evolution and Personal Faith: How Christian University Students Resolve the Conflict
As students across the country begin their academic year, nearly all of them will receive some kind of science education, and many will experience tension between what they have been taught about God's creation in church or at home, and what they are likely to find in science textbooks and hear from their instructors. How should that tension be addressed? How might it be resolved? What resources does the Church have (and still need) to equip our young people to honor the truth God has revealed in both his Word and his world, and to share in the work of his Kingdom? This series from Mark Winslow, Dean of the College of Natural, Social, and Health Sciences at Southern Nazarene University (SNU) in Bethany, OK, focuses on how Christian biology-related majors at a mid-Western Christian liberal arts university reconciled evolution and their personal religious beliefs.
