The question of origins is as controversial inside the Church as it is outside of it. There is an intense debate among believers about how to interpret the Creation account of Genesis. This debate raises many practical questions: Does the Creation controversy cause doubts about other aspects of the Christian faith? How should Christians explain the Genesis account to skeptics, who think it doesn’t agree with modern science?  How can Christian parents help their children navigate through this controversy without compromising their core beliefs or appearing intellectually naive?

In Birmingham, Alabama this June 15-18, these questions and many more were addressed by some of the leading authorities representing the three most prominent views of Creation within the Christian faith: Dr. Hugh Ross (Reasons to Believe) presented the Old Earth Creationist view; Dr. Terry Mortenson (Answers in Genesis) spoke on behalf of Young Earth Creationism; and Dr. Michael Behe (a Fellow of the Discovery Institute) represented the Intelligent Design - Theistic Evolutionary view.

These men addressed questions that all Christians are confronted with: Are the six days of Genesis to be taken literally or metaphorically? Did God use evolution as a vehicle for Creation?  Are science and the Bible at odds? How old is the earth?  

In addition, John Lennox (Professor of Pure mathematics and the philosophy of science at Oxford University), Gilbert Lennox (Pastor of Glenabbey Church in Belfast, Northern Ireland), and Rick Burgess (The Rick and Bubba Show) also addressed this controversy and how they have handled it in their respective public positions.

Keith and Kristyn Getty, authors of "In Christ Alone", led worship.
