TITLE

The Story of Creation: How the Fathers Understood Genesis

QUOTE

"Let's see creation filled with God who created it all. And let's see Christ everywhere. That, I think, is what the Fathers draw from Genesis, and what they invite us to take from Genesis -- even in our day to day life."

Dr. Peter Bouteneff

ON THIS WEEK'S COME RECEIVE THE LIGHT

Today, many Christians disagree on how best to interpret the Book of Genesis. Some even disagree on how modern scientific theories like evolution should influence theology. But this debate is nothing new. Dr. Peter Bouteneff, a professor at St Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary, has studied and written about how the Early Christians addressed and resolved many of these issues. Tune in to find out about the intersection of scripture, science, creation, the ancient Christian faith -- and how it all applies to today's debates.
