An Ancient Bible Gives You Ancient “Science,” Not Modern. (I wish we didn’t have to keep saying that.)

Today we continue Denis Lamoureux’s series of brief slide shows on his popular book I Love Jesus & I Accept EvolutionLamoureux covered chapters 1 and 2 in the first post and in today’s (11 minute) presentation he covers chapter 3, where he discusses the nature of “ancient science.”

This book is a great introduction to his view of origins called “evolutionary creation,” a term he will explain in this series, and which he prefers to the more common “theistic evolution.” (The idea is letting the right noun dominate the phrase.)

Lamoureux is associate professor of science and religion at St. Joseph’s College in the University of Alberta. He holds three earned doctoral degrees—dentistry, theology, and biology–which uniquely qualifies him to speak to the issue of human origins and Christian faith. He gets the science, he gets the hermeneutics, and he articulates both clearly for non-specialists (full bio here).

For those of you who are beyond the beginner’s stage, you can read his much thicker book Evolutionary Creation: A Christian Approach to Evolution.

Lamoureux has also thrown in chapter 3 of the book, in case you want to look at it.
