Rev. Ian McNaughton is Chairman of Answers in Genesis (UK/Europe) and has been a board member since 1993. He is a Bible teacher and preacher, and he holds a ThM degree from Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia. He is fully resolved in his belief that the Bible is the Word of God being true from the very first verse in Genesis chapter 1, which is fully reliable in fact as well as doctrine. He delights to speak about the authority, accuracy, and authenticity of the Holy Scriptures as being totally trustworthy, dependable, and inerrant. As a pastor and theologian he is fully aware of the folly of denying the truths of the Word of God leading to the acceptance of unproven scientific models and hypotheses which result in unbelief. He is conscious of the trend in some “evangelical” circles which confuses the issue of plenary inspiration by promoting a low view of the Holy Scriptures.
Ian became a Christian at the age of 19 and was called into the Christian ministry after studying theology in Edinburgh, Scotland. He has co-authored the book, Darwin and Darwinism 150 Years Later: Biblical Faith and the Chrisitan Worldview, (Day One, 2009) dealing with the topics of Darwin’s worldview, six-day creation and theistic evolution. He has had articles published in Reformation Today and Evangelical Times, authored Opening-Up Commentaries, Colossians and Philemon (Day One, 2006) and 2 Thessalonians (Day One, 2008), and published creationist literature in Albanian, Hungarian, Romanian, and Czech. He has creationist talks on the following themes:
