Trinity Debate: Al Mohler & C. John Collins

Genesis and the Age of the Earth: Does Scripture Speak Definitively about the Age of the Universe?


Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

February 1, 2017  | ATO Chapel, 1:30–3:30 pm

Whether one traces the origins of evangelicalism to the fundamentalist-modernist controversy, or back further to the great awakenings in the 18th and 19th centuries, the age the earth has been a pressing question throughout its history. Evidenced by the question’s staying-power, a satisfying resolution has remained hard to come by. At bedrock the debate raises several important exegetical and theological questions addressing issues like biblical authority, the proper interpretation of opening chapters of Genesis, and the relation between scientific and theological knowledge, to name only a few of the more difficult ones. In this year’s debate, prominent evangelical voices C. John Collins and Al Mohler will debate this important question and the wider issues surrounding how one responds to it.

Seating is limited and registration is required.
