  • Description:

    First Topic – Prove It: God & Friendship With Jesus: Pope Benedict XVI Speaks to Children on Their First Holy Communion

    One of our favorite people, Amy Welborn is here. She has updated Prove It: God, she has written a children’s book entitled Friendship With Jesus: Pope Benedict XVI Speaks to Children on Their First Holy Communion and we revisit her book Come Meet Jesus: An Invitation From Pope Benedict XVI.

    Second Topic – God and Evolution

    What does it mean to say that God “used evolution” to create the world? Is Darwin’s theory of evolution compatible with belief in God? And even if Darwin’s theory could be reconciled with religious belief, do we need to do so? Is the theory well established scientifically? Is it true? In the century and a half since Charles Darwin first proposed his theory of evolution, Christians, Jews, and other religious believers have grappled with how to make sense of it. Most have understood that Darwin’s theory has profound theological implications, but their responses have varied dramatically. Jay Richards is a Catholic, a fellow at the Discovery Institute, a theologian and the author of God and Evolution.
