The latest issue of Themelios includes a penetrating review of Peter Enns’s controversial The Evolution of Adam: What the Bible Does and Doesn’t Say about Human Origins.
Hans Madueme. “Some Reflections on Enns and The Evolution of Adam: A Review Essay.” Themelios 37 (2012): 275–86.
Hans and I entered the PhD program at Trinity at the same time, and I enjoyed taking some courses with him. He’s extremely well-read and thoughtful. Before coming to Trinity for his MDiv and PhD, he was a medical doctor. This fall he plans to begin teaching at Covenant College in Lookout Mountain, Georgia, and he’ll continue to serve as Themelios book review editor for systematic theology and bioethics.
This summer he completed his PhD dissertation: “The Evolution of Sin: Sin, Theistic Evolution, and the Biological Question—A Theological Account.”
Here’s the outline for his review:
- Preliminary Remarks
- The Doctrine of Scripture
- Natural Science and Historical Criticism
- Further Theological Concerns
- A Methodological Aside
- Concluding Thoughts
