      1. Jan 25 (Sun): Q1 Origin of the Universe - Cosmogony (The Big

We will examine the implications of The Big Bang Model of cosmology for
Christian belief. Do the philosophical and scientific consequences of the
Big Bang Model of the origin of the universe negate the Christian doctrine
of creation? We shall consider Stephen Hawking's proposal for a
non-boundaried universe as well as the philosophies of Richard Swinburne
and William Lane Craig in defense of the contingency and future of creation.
We conclude that the Christian belief in the universe as (possibly one among
many) created by God is not inconvergent with current understanding of human
inquiry. To purchase the accompanying book, please go to

  2. Feb 01 (Sun) Q2 Origin of Life - Biogenesis (The Big

We will examine the implications of the Big Birth theory for the emergence
of organic life for a biblical and confessional Christian faith. We shall
discuss life on Mars and what is called Second Genesis, life deep in the
crust o the earth and the oceans. The important theories of RNA and
Thioester Worlds will also be examined. We conclude that the latest findings
in origin of life research is convergent with the biblical doctrine of
creation. To purchase the accompanying book, please go to

  3. Feb 08 (Sun) Q3 Origin of Man - Paleoanthropology (The Big

In the study of human origins, paleoanthropology has come to challenge
theological anthropology as the most convincing way to describe the rise of
humans. But what exactly does the Bible say? And what can science affirm?
Was Adam the first human whom God created directly from nothing or was
humanity, as the OT suggested, 'made' from preexisting materiel? Were there
more than one type of humans? What of the 'others' of Gen. 6? Were the
Neanderthals and the Hobbits of Indonesia different human species? In this
murky world of making sense of deep history, we find significant convergence
between divine disclosure and scientific discovery. To purchase the
accompanying book, please go to
