Peter Enns on Adam, Evolution, and Evangelicals in The Huffington Post

Peter Enns, author of The Evolution of Adam: What the Bible Does and Doesn’t Say about Human Origins, has written an article for The Huffington Post titled, “Once More, With Feeling: Adam, Evolution and Evangelicals.”

Dr. Enns writes:

“Evolution is a threat, and many evangelicals are fighting to keep Adam in the family photo album. But in their rush to save Christianity, some evangelicals have been guilty of all sorts of strained, idiosyncratic or obscurantist tactics: massaging or distorting the data, manipulating the legal system, scaring their constituencies and strong-arming those of their own camp who raise questions.

These sorts of tactics get a lot of press, but behind them is a deeper problem — a problem that gets close to the heart of evangelicalism itself and hampers any true dialogue.

It has to do with what evangelicals expect from the Bible.”
