Hist_adamIn recent years the historical Adam issue has escalated. Yet it isn’t a new issue. So contends Ardel Caneday, professor of New Testament studies and editor of Four Views on the Historical Adam.

“It seems that each generation since Darwin has had to face the issue again and again. It's simply another resurgence of the issue we have to face.” Caneday and fellow editor William Barrick regarded the issue with “such magnitude and seriousness” that it needed to be addressed, and with a distinctive book.

Caneday explains how this book is distinct and how it will challenge you with the various options discussed. While the discussion is cordial there are real differences, especially between the pastoral voices who differ on whether the issue is essential for the faith.

Listen to Caneday explain how this book will help you engage this significant, serious discussion. Then go engage it yourself.
