When I came to personal faith in my early 20s, I was told that young earth creationism was the only option for understanding the origins of humanity. I was told that any Christian that believed in evolution was not really a Christian. So I was shocked when I started seminary and a number of my professors believed in evolution.
I now understand that there is a range of interpretations of the biblical and scientific data. I believe that people in each camp are faithful Christians who are doing their best to understand the data.
I recently listened to a few podcast episodes that dealt specifically with theistic evolution (often also called evolutionary creationism). I thought I would share the links here to help further the conversation.
