On Sunday, July 7th, a group of people gathered to discuss an article from our denominational magazine, The Banner, called “Tomorrow’s Theology.” Because the article argues for some things that go against the tradition and historical teachings of the Christian Reformed Church, we thought it was important to get together and talk. For those interested in continuing to learn about the interplay of Science and Faith, or the Reformed Confessions, the following links should prove as a worthwhile starting point.
Science and Faith links
The Ministry Theorem from Calvin Seminary
Origins: Christian Perspectives on Creation, Evolution and Intelligent Design by Deborah Haarsma and Loren Haarsma (formerly titled: Origins: A Reformed Look at Creation, Design & Evolution). This site provides information about the book as well as links to further reading for each chapter.
Two other articles from The Banner: “Reformed Matters: Did Adam and Eve Really Exist?” and “Speaking of Evolution”
Reformed Confessions links
You can read the Heidelberg Catechism, Belgic Confession and the Canons of Dort online by going to the Christian Reformed Church’s “Beliefs” page.
The Winter 2013 Calvin Seminary Forum features articles on the history of each of the Confessions.
Body & Soul: Reclaiming the Heidelberg Catechism by M. Craig Barnes. Also available is a small group discussion guide and DVD.
