CAP 101: Foundations in Creation Apologetics

The course will arm you with knowledge and resources to help you engage the creation/ evolution debate, and will review the scriptural foundation that refutes those who compromise Scripture by espousing ideas like progressive creation and theistic evolution. In addition, you will study important concepts in biology and geology to become better able to explain how science confirms the truth of Scripture.
