For this second instalment of our three-part series on historical Adam and Eve, Andy and Terry sat down with Dennis Venema, professor of biology from Trinity Western University, to talk about evolution, evolutionary creationism, and how these might fit within a Christian worldview concerning historical Adam and Eve.
