Dr. Terry Mortenson grew up in an educational system that taught evolution as fact, but shortly after becoming a Christian, he realized that the idea of millions of years of evolution is false. He holds a B.A. in math, a Master of Divinity degree from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Chicago, and a Ph.D. in the history of geology from the University of Coventry in England. Before joining Answers in Genesis in 2001 as a speaker, writer, and researcher, he served as a missionary with Campus Crusade for Christ for 26 years. Since the late 1970s, he has spoken on creation and evolution in homes and schools in 22 countries. He has had seven formal debates with evolutionist university professors in four countries and is a member of the Evangelical Theological Society. Since joining AiG, he has authored numerous journal, magazine, and web articles, including The Great Turning Point: the Church’s Catastrophic Mistake on Geology—Before Darwin (Master Books, 2004). In 2008, he co-edited and contributed to the 14-author book, Coming to Grips with Genesis: Biblical Authority and the Age of the Earth (Master Books). He and his wife, Margie, have eight children and five grandchildren.
