Article Summary: After a brief look at theological responses to biological evolution, some fundamental themes of Christian theology are reviewed.

A preliminary look is also taken at the related problems of evil, sin and death in the evolutionary context.

Did you know that you can be a Christian,
and believe that the earth is billions of years old? You can even
believe in evolution and be a Christian. There is no conflict
between science and the Bible...all one needs is a proper
understanding how to merge science and the Bible. To learn more
