AP – 623-755 The Genesis Debate: Four Views of Creation 3 CR

This course equips students to become peacemakers in congregations where differing creation views have caused strife and division. Students will primarily consider Young Earth Creationism, Old Earth Creationism, Theistic Evolution, and Framework Hypothesis, but will also consider the Analogical View and Gap Theory. While learning the strengths and weaknesses of each position, they will gain a greater understanding of their own beliefs and learn to relate to those with differing views with charity, love, and humility.
