Is there an inherent conflict between the Biblical creation narrative in Genesis 1-3 and the modern scientific theory of evolution? Does one have to reject evolution and the modern scientific enterprise to affirm the Christian faith? Likewise does one have to reject the Christian faith to affirm modern science? On the surface there appears to be tension between the two, but maybe there is more space, more intellectual breathing room, when dealing with these questions than previously thought. Dr. Tremper Longman and Dr. Jeff Schloss, preeminent scholars in their fields, not only ask the very same questions but give us compelling reasons to believe that this presupposed conflict is unnecessary. Listen in on a conversation between a Old Testament scholar and a Biologist as they wrestle with this important topic.
