Hello Everyone,
I thoroughly enjoyed our time together at this year's ASA annual meeting. During the Hermeneutics Workshop it became clear to me that the material could be presented in a clearer and more efficient way. So below you will see that I have "re-packaged" all of it into a series of audio-slides with new handouts. I have also included HIGH SCHOOL & SUNDAY SCHOOL versions of the lectures. Any suggestions for improvement would be much valued.

  The Bible & Ancient Science  
  Many Christians assume that God revealed basic scientific facts about nature in the Bible. Known as “scientific concordism” or simply “concordism,” this approach attempts to align and harmonize modern science and Scripture. This presentation examines a number of biblical passages dealing with the natural world. It proposes that the Holy Spirit accommodated in the revelatory process and allowed the use of an incidental ancient understanding of nature (ie, an ancient science) as an incidental vessel to deliver inerrant Spiritual Truths.
