Proving_Adam_INIn his recent contribution to Four Views on the Historical Adam, Dr. William Barrick articulates a position that is also affirmed by the GARBC’s Articles of Faith: Adam was an actual historic person, the originator of the human race. Barrick, now semiretired from teaching at The Master’s Seminary, continues to lead an adult Bible class at Placerita Baptist Church, Newhall, Calif., where he serves as an elder.

The issue hinges on our view of Scripture, Barrick says, affirming the Bible as inerrant and historically reliable. He offers some background to the recently released book, then challenges churches to guard the authority and sufficiency of Scripture.
