Struggling with God & Origins: A Personal Story by Denis Lamoureux
This is a story about struggling with God. As a freshman college student, Denis Lamoureux lost his boyhood Christian faith because of evolution. With no spiritual foundation, he made medical school his idol and eventually became an immoral atheist. Yet by God’s grace, and in an answer to his mother’s prayers, Denis read the Gospel of John and fell in love with the Prince of Peace while serving in the military as a United Nations peacekeeper on the island of Cyprus.
This is also a story about struggling with origins. Like most evangelical Christians, Lamoureux was a stanch young earth creationist. But the Lord had a plan for his life and led him to complete a PhD in theology and a PhD in biology. To his surprise, Lamoureux discovered that the Creator evolved intelligently designed living creatures that declare the glory of God. Through miraculous signs and wonders, the Lord Jesus called Dr. Lamoureux to be a college professor and to proclaim a peaceful relationship between his evangelical Christian faith and the modern evolutionary sciences.
