The Learner-Inquirer Approach to Addressing Evolution in Christian Schools

Published on July 16, 2015

Addressing evolution in Evangelical Christian schools by asserting a definitive view—either for or against the theory—does not work, and inevitably leads to confusion and strife. Instead of assertion, Christian schools are encouraged to recognize that all of us—students and teachers alike—are still sorting through the scientific, theological, and soteriological implications of evolutionary theory. Thus, the best approach for now is to focus on teaching students to think, study, learn, and inquire on their own without settling for a simplistic or dogmatic point of view.
