Lessons from the Wittenberg Circle

Evolution is a major issue in evangelicalism today. In Martin Luther's day it was heliocentrism. This paper describes a choice the church had to make at that time -- suppress scientific discovery or allow scholars to freely study the issue and make their findings known, even if those findings challenge established doctrine.

What Kind of Science is Found in the Bible?

The Bible is God's word with the primary goal of making humanity wise for salvation. The descriptions of the natural realm found in its pages are examples of the best knowledge of day. The Bible is not anti-scientific, but pre-scientific. 

Bernard Ramm and The Law of Unintended Consequences

Bernard Ramm was a well-respected Baptist theologian of the 1950's. His book, The Christian View of Science and Scripture, which endorsed a form of evolutionary science, prompted strong criticism and was a primary motivator for the writing of the young earth creationist classic The Genesis Flood.

Evangelicals and Evolutionary Science

Pastor Gregory O. Boyd says, "I am deeply invested in presenting the gospel in an intellectually credible fashion to nonbelievers in our culture. For this reason, I think it is incredibly significant that, from Galileo’s inquisition to the Scopes trial to the present evolution debates, whenever the church has assumed a rigid opposition to the consensus of the scientific community, it has eventually harmed the credibility of the church in the eyes of the broader culture."

Perspectives on the Sociology of Science

Science is a vast body of knowledge. It is also a method for gathering that knowledge. This paper seeks to place science into the proper context and clarify questions and concerns that many evangelicals have about science being predominately associated with atheism and therefore corrosive to faith.
