Creation Apologetics and Biology

Strengthen your walk and deepen your understanding of the integrity and authority of Scripture. No other document in history makes the bold claims the Bible does, and no other document has the integrity of the Bible. This 6-week course will teach you how to defend the biblical account of creation in the area of biology and deepen your commitment to the authority of Scripture.

Students will be involved in reading articles, researching issues related to biology from a creationist perspective, watching videos, and completing assignments that uphold the Bible as the ultimate source of truth—even in the field of biology. Students will receive a discount code for 20% off all purchases in Answers Bookstore for the entire duration of the course.
