Ever since long-age geology & the theory of evolution became established in the nineteenth century, Christians have been divided over how to respond to the secular views of origins. Among evangelicals there are two main positions. One is to accept the secular view in whole or in part, & to reinterpret the Bible to harmonize it with that view. The other is to reject the secular view, believing it to be incompatible with the Bible & contrary to the evidence. Are both these positions equally valid, or is one right & the other wrong? And does it really matter? This booklet examines some of the biblical, scientific & historical issues,& helps the reader to understand the debate & to make an informed choice.
