Creation and Evolution – Waltke’s View and Consequences

Bruce Waltke is one of the best known scholars in Old Testament studies. I heard him speak, I read some of his writing, and I like him a lot. At 79 he still keeps going by teaching OT in various places (it looks like he is moving to Knox Theological Seminary in Fort Lauderdale, FL)!

I am writing this brief blog just to draw attention to the fact that Waltke has weighed in on the issue of theistic evolution. This weighing in has led to his departure (he was NOT forced to resign as some outlets suggest) from RTS (Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, FL) and to a flurry of blogs.

These blogs shed additional light on this most important issue for Christianity in the 21st century: latest info, John Hobbins, and Justin Taylor. John Hobbins has the links to many bloggers who discussed this topic.

It remains to be seen where this story will go and what its impact will be in the evangelical world!

  1. I saw your comments on John Hobbins blog, and I thought you might be interested in a post I wrote a while back critiquing Daniel Harrell’s “Nature’s Witness”, as well as a recent post on the theological problems with Waltke’s position that you might find interesting or helpful.
