Thanks for posting. I signed up and am listening to the first lesson. Sounds good so far. The lecturer comes at Genesis 1 from the standpoint that
" * So the creation account is not strictly literal.

  • But the language in the first chapters in Genesis is not strictly figurative either. God intends to communicate, and he is a good communicator (the best). So we are certain that the analogical language in Genesis is reliable and sufficiently like the literal."
    He then goes on to argue for 6 24 hour days of creation, so we will see how it goes.
    I was curious as to how DTS teaches. Should be interesting.
