Summer Workshop: Professor Arand in GreenBay, WI
The Great Evangelical Creation Debate
One of the hottest issues among the Evangelicals these days revolves around the question of creation and origins. Three positions have emerged within their circles. These are the Old Earth Creationists, the Young Earth Creationists, and the Evolutionary Creationists. The questions they raise and the answers they give will spill over into our circles as our people become familiar with their publications. So what are these positions? And most importantly, where do Lutherans stand on the individual issues as well as the assumptions of the entire debate.
Arand has published several books and over fifty articles on topics related to the Lutheran Confessions (with an emphasis on the catechisms) and the theology of creation. Dr. Arand served as the primary drafter for the Commission on Theology and Church Relations (CTCR) document, Together with All Creatures: Caring for God’s Living Earth (Concordia Publishing House). Since then, he has written numerous articles, given public lectures at several Concordia Universities, made presentations to numerous pastor conferences, and conducted many congregational workshops on the topic. He is currently exploring how the theology of creation informs not just our care of creation, but how creation and redemption are intimately united.
