Bruce Waltke - Theistic Evolution Controversy

July 2010

Bruce Waltke, professor of Old Testament at Reformed Theological Seminary Orlando resigned this spring over controversy stirred by comments he made in a video posted at the website of BioLogos Foundation, a theistic evolution think-tank headed up by Peter Enns, former professor of Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia. Waltke said, “I think that if the data is overwhelming in favor, in favor of evolution, to deny that reality will make us a cult, some odd group that’s not really interacting with the real world.” Shortly after resigning from RTS, Waltke was hired by Knox Theological Seminary.
