FREE course: The Historical Adam


Regular readers will recall my recent forays into human origins, in the areas of both fossils and genetics.  Most of you also know that this is a hot area of debate in evangelicalism generally, with a minority of individuals vocally pushing for acceptance of human evolution or for abandoning traditional conceptions of Adam and Eve.  Human origins is kind of a big deal right now.

Part of Core Academy's new mission is to help Christians understand these kinds of controversial issues, so we decided to create a special, six-hour short course on The Historical Adam, featuring yours truly.  The purpose of the course is to present the state of the debate, especially in its historical context.  The course will feature streaming video lessons as well as written notes.  The six sessions will look something like this:

1.  History of the debate
2.  Biblical and theological issues
3.  Fossils
4.  Genetics
5.  Christian perspectives I
6.  Christian perspectives II

For the inaugural offering of the course, it's totally free to anyone who signs up before August 5.  If you can stream the video to your location, then you can take this course.  So if you've been wondering what these Core Academy courses will be like, this is a great time to find out.  You can sign up right here:
