Peter Bouteneff on Genesis and the Church Fathers

This week at Come Recieve The Light you can listen to Dr. Peter Bouteneff, a professor at St. Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary, explain how the Church Fathers understood some of the more controversial passages in Genesis.

Christians disagree on how to interpret Genesis. Some lean toward an evolutionary view of creation while others affirm creation as having a fixed order. But this debate is not new. Dr. Peter Bouteneff, who has studied how Early Christians resolved many of these issues, works at the intersection of scripture, science, and the ancient Christian faith, and applies his learning to the contemporary discussion.

Go here to listen.
