What did the writer of Genesis imply by "the first day"? Is it a literal week or a chain of time periods? If I believe that the world is 4.5 billion years of age, am I refusing the authority of Scripture?
In reaction to the continuing controversy on the interpretation of the development narrative in Genesis, John Lennox proposes a succinct method of reading and deciphering the initial chapters of Genesis without ignoring either science or Bible. With examples from background, a brief but thorough exploration of the dominant interpretations, including a look into the special importance of the development of persons, Lennox suggests that Christians can heed contemporary scientific knowledge while remaining faithful to the biblical narrative. He moves beyond an easy reply to the argument, insisting that Genesis instructs us far more about the God of Jesus and about God's intent for creation than it does concerning the era of the earth.
With this specific book, Lennox offers a careful yet accessible introduction to some scientifically savvy, theologically astute, and Scripturally faithful interpretation of Genesis.
