Peter Enns' blog

    I have been enjoying reading a series of posts by the theologian and biblical scholar Peter Enns recently including a number on "recurring mistakes in the Adam/Evolution discussion" that seem pertinent to some of our other discussions, and also some interesting stuff on the authority of the bible. See:

    Thanks, Simon. Peter Enns is big in Biologos and seems to be a very significant voice in the discussion. I've found some of his theological and biblical conclusions hard to swallow, but I think I'd agree with him that

    Evolution causes theological problems for Christianity. There is no question of that. We cannot simply graft evolution onto evangelical theology and claim that we have reconciled Christianity and evolution.

    He has a book coming out in January, "The Evolution of Adam: What the Bible Does and Doesn't Say about Human Origins":
