Science and Genesis | Hope’s Reason

This is an 11:46 video on the subject of how Genesis speaks about creation.  It includes Alistair McGrath, John Walton, John Polkinghorne, Peter Enns, and N. T. Wright.

They are advancing a non-literalistic interpretation of the creation narrative, and they say things helpful to appreciating the cultural context in which Moses wrote.  Their point is, and it’s a good one, that the Bible is not trying to teach us science.  Nevertheless, the video is not that helpful when it comes to discussing the elephant in the room, which is, of course, evolution and whether or not it can be reconciled with entirety of the Bible.
