CAP 101: Fundamentals of Creation Apologetics

This 8-lesson online course will give you a firm foundation in the fundamental ideas of creation apologetics and help you understand the battle between the authority of Scripture and the authority of man in modern culture.

The course will arm you with knowledge and resources to help you engage the culture with the truth of Scripture, and will review the scriptural foundation that refutes those who compromise Scripture by espousing ideas like progressive creation and theistic evolution.
