Adam, Where Are You?
And Why This Matters: A Theological Evaluation of the Evolutionist Hermeneutic
By Willem J. Ouweneel
Since the nineteenth century, many Christian theologians have been converted to the theory of evolution – a theory whose scientific tenability they are not qualified to assess, but which they are unlikely to give up. The majority of recent books by Christian academics on this subject have all but surrendered the entire field of origins to an evolutionary “molecule-to-man” view of reality. The central thesis of this book is that those who accept the theory of general evolution cannot at the same time be orthodox Christians because the matter of origins does not belong at the periphery but at the heart of the Christian message.
