Description : Christian apologist Ben Smith believes that the creation account in Genesis 1 can be read literally and historically as a real week of seven normal days without contradicting modern astronomy and geology regarding the age of the universe and Earth. Many Christians are divided over how to reconcile Genesis with modern science, and this book evaluates all of the major options, ultimately concluding that the Bible allows for an old universe and Earth in a way that is also scientifically accurate. A former Young Earth creationist, Smith now believes that the age of creation is not specified in the Bible, and therefore scientists are free to answer the question. He believes that Christians should not hide from the controversy over the age of the Earth, but should take a fresh look at the text and be impressed with its accuracy.

Description : What does it mean to be a good reader of Genesis 1-11? What does it mean to take these ancient stories seriously and how does that relate to taking them literally? Can we even take any of this material seriously? Reading Genesis Well answers these questions and more, promoting a responsible conversation about how science and biblical faith relate by developing a rigorous approach to interpreting the Bible, especially those texts that come into play in science and faith discussions. This unique approach connects the ancient writings of Genesis 1-11 with modern science in an honest and informed way. Old Testament scholar C. John Collins appropriates literary and linguistic insights from C. S. Lewis and builds on them using ideas from modern linguistics, such as lexical semantics, discourse analysis, and sociolinguistics. This study helps readers to evaluate to what extent it is proper to say that the Bible writers held a "primitive" picture of the world, and what function their portrayal of the world and its contents had in shaping the community.

Description : One of this book’s main themes is how God’s ‘Book of Nature’ is concordant with His ‘Book of Scripture’. In their writings, many of the pioneers of the Scientific Revolution often referred to God’s two ‘Books’. These brilliant naturalists were also devout Christians. But that was back then. Is modern science actually compatible with Scripture? More to the point, are the findings of 21st-century science concordant with the Genesis creation story? What else does the text of Genesis 1-2 have to say? While making an honest effort to answer those questions, some vitally-important theological concepts (which were introduced by Moses in the first two chapters of Genesis) are also examined and discussed in this volume. This comprehensive study (on how modern science is concordant with the intended meaning of the text of Genesis 1-2) has many useful features, including the following: Much of the first two parts of the book consists of background material on: (1) logic, (2) history and philosophy of science, and (3) ‘scientific method’, as well as (4) basic geological principles, (5) descriptions of Plate Tectonic theory, and (6) the principles and methods of radiometric dating. This background material is designed to help the reader to understand the implications of the empirical evidence presented in Part Two: God’s Book of Nature. Similarly, there is also extensive material on: (1) Biblical interpretation and hermeneutics, (2) textual criticism, (3) the history of ancient Israel, (4) development of the Hebrew language, and (5) some of the basic elements of Biblical Hebrew. This material is given prior to looking at the literary structure and genre of the Genesis 1-2 text, and then conducting thorough and complete exegetical analyses of the various textual units of Genesis 1-2 in Part Four: God’s Book of Scripture. Prior to the exegetical analyses for each of the textual units of Genesis 1-2, (1) the Biblical Hebrew text, (2) a standard English translation, and (3) an Interlinear version of the text of that unit are provided. The Interlinear version consists of (a) the Hebrew text, with (b) SBL transliterations and (c) English glosses below each one of the Hebrew words. Color coding and other types of annotations/highlighting are used throughout Part Four: God’s Book of Scripture, in order to help the reader identify important Biblical Hebrew elements, including recurring phrases, important BH words, and key BHVS verb forms. There are more than 2000 detailed footnotes. Many of these footnotes also cross-reference other topics in the book to make it easier for the reader to refer back to a discussion of some important theme or concept. Excerpts from the entries of reputable Hebrew and Greek lexicons (for words written in the original languages of the Biblical text) are also footnoted. An Appendix is included with a Key to Transliteration and Pronunciation for Biblical Hebrew graphemes; it also has a short section on Biblical Hebrew Accent Markings. Numerous detailed, colored figures are sprinkled throughout the text. In many of these figures, the artwork itself is worth the inexpensive price of the digital edition of this book. Part Six: The Good News is worth reading as a stand-alone exposition of God’s Grace, but it also helps put the rest of the book in context. Although the most common (and logical) way to read A Fresh Look at Genesis 1-2 is from start to finish, this 1100-page book was also intended to be used as a reference work. Footnotes direct the reader back to pertinent material in preceding chapters that might not have been read already (or that readers might want to revisit, in order to refresh their memory on some topic).

Description : The lines have been drawn. On one side are young earth creationists, who assert that God created the universe in six days and--based on calculations derived from the Bible--that the earth is six thousand years old. On the other side are secular scientists, who claim the universe has existed for over thirteen billion years, the earth for 4.5 billion. Scientists claim that no miracles were necessary to form the universe, and that everything is explained by natural causes. However, young earth creationists point to verses at the beginning of the Bible and the beginning of the book of John that clearly claim that God created the universe. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters. Genesis 1:1-2 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. John 1:1-3 But what if there is no contradiction between scientific data and the Bible? Arnold Guyot was a nineteenth-century geologist and geographer at Princeton University. In addition to his numerous scientific accomplishments, he developed the day-age interpretation of Genesis 1, in which the "days" of creation represent geologic ages. When we view the Bible through this lens, we find that modern science has not only failed to refute the miracles of Genesis, but has in fact provided abundant evidence for their veracity. Genesis Revealed: A Scientific Examination of the Creation Story takes readers down the twin paths of science and theology to show that they lead us to the same destination. Citing a multitude of discoveries in astronomy and geology, Dr. Peter Waller makes a compelling case for Guyot's interpretation--and for the miracles described in Genesis 1:1-25.

Description : The present creation-evolution debate is often cast as a choice between two positions: naturalistic evolution over millions of years or miraculous creation six thousand years ago. When simplified, this choice is often presented as one between science and the Bible, a choice that leaves much ground between the two views yet to be discussed. A Biblical Case for an Old Earth seeks to address the gap between theistic evolutionism and young-earth creationism by finally paying due attention to the biblical aspect of the debate. Both a scientist and a preacher, David Snoke presents a theological study of several themes in the evolution discussion, including the balance theme of Scripture and the day-age interpretation. Complete with an appendix that gives a literal translation of Genesis 1-11, this intriguing study will interest both scientists and lay Christians who want to dig into the faith-science intersection.

Description : Modern Science teaches that the Universe is at the most 15 billion years old. The Bible teaches that it was made in 6 24-hour days. On the surface of things, it would seem that someone is wrong! Using the principles asserted by Dr. Gerald L. Schroeder in his book, Genesis and the Big Bang we can demonstrate by physics that BOTH can be correct - simultaneously. The Rabbi Shaul ( Apostle Paul) said: "I become all things to all men..." (1 Corinthians 9:20-22) we could use this understanding to relate to those who do not believe in God, who come from a scientific perspective. Even if you believe in a strictly "Young Earth" perspective, without subscribing to the physics as presented by Dr. Schroeder, it is important that you understand the principles taught by the perspective of a physicist as esteemed as Dr. Schroeder so that you could use this information to win those who approach the creation of the Universe from a "non-Intelligent design" perspective.

Description : There are five examples of A Cosmic Birth… I did 5 versions of the same book because some people prefer explaining and some prefer proof and others prefer a mixture of both. In want everybody to be able to read one of the books A Cosmic Birth while understanding and accepting the proof. Explaining does not prove and proof does not explain. Proving without explaining is meaningless and open for rejection. I challenge all atheists to prove this book wrong ass a book of mathematical science. I combine science and the Bible but uses only science mathematically. Science is the work of God Almighty as the Bible is the word of God Almighty. Do not confuse the two…each one has a purpose. The word of God is written by fellow men long after the event and shows at times poor memory recollection but is the truth nonetheless. In this book you are going to see how science as the work of God proves the word of God correct. By proving mathematically Geneses 1 V 1 I combine the word of God (the Bible) and the work of God (scientific Creation and cosmic development) and how the Universe came about mathematically just as the scripture says it happened. God uses science to perform His miracles and the person needing miracles to see the work of God has no understanding about science. Science is a miracle only a Power such as God almighty is can accomplish. There is no “normal” in science because everything about science is one miracle following the next miracle. Even something as “ordinary” as wind blowing is one huge miracle when cutting it down to the smallest part. It by dissecting this detail that introduce the significance of the “ordinary” in science that we discover the miracle of what happened when the event of Genesis 1 v 1 unfolds. By using science in simple mathematics I prove Genesis 1 verse 1 as correct. There are 4 laws science knows but doesn't understand. I deciphered these 4 laws that nature uses to form the cosmos. The truth of these laws science hides because it undermines Newtonian science. These laws form the Universe by stars being spheres and galactica as circles. With these laws I prove using mathematics that the atheistic Big Bang isn't the beginning but the beginning occurred precisely as the Bible declares it happened in Genesis 1v1. Science knows these principles but atheists refused publishing because it proves the Universe started where with light the void began in Genesis 1. However to explain it one must use mathematics because Genesis 1 verse 1 takes understanding past the verbal and into Creation where creation came by applying science as it developed mathematics. Developing space is maths. Your first reaction will be to say this book is science. The atheist dominated science world will not even read my work and use the excuse that it is religiously orientated because I prove the Bible. Then the publishing world of religion use the excuse that this is science to avoid confrontation with the atheists and Christianity then cowardly bends the knee in front of atheists once again. In this way science hides the truth and Christian publishing avoids the truth and science concur the minds of all with the biggest fraud invented.This book is refused publishing by science because it annihilates the atheists' claims on science and shows how much the science the atheist holds up, as truth is bogus. Religion turns it down because as science Christians think it is too complicated to understand. …And so atheism rules religion while religion cowers in the face of science and while I PROVE how much of a farce science in the Newtonian vision is a hoax. You can turn away (again) and allow atheism to flourish or you can help me destroy atheism just by reading what I wrote! However if you wish something to be complicated it is but nothing worthwhile ever was simple and easy. When God Almighty created creation He created space and to write space one uses mathematics and physics to achieve that. I decipher mathematics in physics.

Description : Faith is often the boast of the man who is too lazy to investigate. -F. M. Knowles Religion and science. To some, the two represent separate and antagonistic forces in constant opposition. But do we really have to choose? In Hidden Things, Rodney Michael Walters reveals how combining religious meaning with scientific understanding broadens our view of creation and the Creator. Using systematic theology, he employs science, Scripture, and common sense to explore the events of Genesis. On the one hand, science uncovers a world of magnificent order containing the distinctive marks of intelligent design. Through science, we explore, observe, and make intellectual sense of creation. On the other hand, religion takes scientific discoveries and gives them meaning, revealing the Creator behind the physical universe. Combined, the two systems offer a stronger and more convincing view of creation than either can achieve alone, allowing us to confirm religious faith through scientific evidence and reasoning. A thoughtful discussion of creation for those who value both religious faith and scientific inquiry, Hidden Things reminds us that God's plan is to let us find our way, revealing the hidden and the sacred through our unending quest for knowledge and salvation.

Description : Do Pentecostals believe that Genesis 1-2, with their creation narratives, are literally the truth? What about scientists who argue that the world originated in a big bang and life on earth through processes of evolution? Can Pentecostals reconcile their confession that God is the creator of the world and life with science? This book explains how Pentecostals can read the Bible and science in a way that resonates God’s grace and glory. It provides an alternative way of thinking from a biblical perspective about the origins of the universe and the theory of evolution as possible ways to explain where the world and life came from.

The Genesis Project presents visual perception intended to provoke thought and personal insight by the person viewing the piece. It should stimulate the appreciation for the fact that Creation, the Bible, and Science can all co-exist and in fact agree with one-another. This presentation is intended to PROVOKE thought, insight and discussion through the artist's extensive background in many disciplines of science.

Description : Conflict between science and the Bible has no validity, and no other passage has been debated between believers and nonbelievers as much as the first three chapters of Genesis. At least that's what author Wendell Ford, engineer and veteran student of creation, believes. Ford draws from his educational background in electrical engineering and over sixty years' worth of interest in theology as he looks at the creation account from a scientific and biblical perspective that deftly blends the two concepts in a way that is educational, insightful, and analytical. Genesis 1, 2, 3 and Beyond explores the facets of these much-debated and controversial beginnings of creation in three ways: to present scientific elements in the Bible that clearly support creation to expound on biblical elements in the Bible that preserve creation to preserve the element of faith that might be eroded by publicized clashes between mainstream scientists and biblical believers Readers of science and theology will be challenged and encouraged by Ford's ability to neatly explain why science is expressly seen throughout the powerful, creative beginnings of the world. Readers of the Bible and those who delight in seeing God's creation in action across the page will enjoy Ford's informative approach to science and the Bible in light of traditional creation.

Description : Since Darwin published his theory of evolution, the Church has been under constant and ever-increasing pressure to compromise the truths of Creation. Disregarding scientific evidence that brings the theory into serious doubt, some Christians have proven all too accommodating in attempting to gain acceptance as viable scientists, paleontologists, archaeologists, professors of biology, geology, anthropology, etc. Theistic Evolution has now crept into Christian colleges and universities. Dr C. Wesley King offers a serious examination and challenge to this union of twisted theology and science, presenting facts and naming names. He reveals how the doctrine threatens to undermine the very foundations of the Christian faith; by calling into question the biblical account of creation, the lordship of the Creator, the divinity of Jesus as established by his death and resurrection, the entire Faith is at risk. While strongly supporting the scriptures, "The Battle for Genesis 1 and 2" is a compendium of scientific observation and irrefutable logic. Couched in layman's terms, the volume goes to the very root of the modern assertion of Theistic Evolution and draws the "red line" that must not be crossed if members of the Church are going to remain on the side of truth.

Description : Revised & Expanded for this special 25th anniversary edition, Ken Ham once again takes the lead in pointing out the looming precipice too many church leaders are rushing towards: a denial of the full authority and accuracy of the Bible from its very first verse. In addition, Ken powerfully shows how the ideas of evolution and millions of years are driving young people away from the Christian faith, and provides solid, biblical solutions to turn things around. Published in 1987, this book took a bold stand which became prophetic. Ken warned the church about the destructive effects of compromise with evolutionary/millions of years ideas. He warned that compromise in Genesis would undermine Scriptural authority in the culture and erode confidence in the infallibility of God’s Word. Today, Christians (and those considering the Christian faith) increasingly doubt the Bible’s reliability. Compromising Genesis has led to a generational loss of an acceptance of the absolute authority of the Word of God, and leading to an exodus of young people from the church Why Genesis remains critically important in presenting the Gospel This slippery slope of reinterpreting Scripture to redefining biblical doctrine Discover how your handling of the biblical account of creation impacts your understanding of all of Scripture and your worldview The issues are of critical importance when you realize that today we have Christians not only confused when it comes to Genesis and the age of the earth, but now even the reality of Hell, Adam as a real person, and Christ’s own words about creation, marriage and more are debated in the pulpits across the world. One compromise just leads to another – and it has to end if we want to leave a legacy of faith to future generations.

Description : Many believers worry that science undermines the Christian faith. Instead of fearing scientific discovery, Jack Collins believes that Christians should delight in the natural world and study it. God's truth will stand against any challenge and will enrich the very scientific studies that we fear. Collins first defines faith and science, shows their relation, and explains what claims each has concerning truth. Then he applies the biblical teaching on creation to the topics of "conflict" between faith and science, including the age of the earth, evolution, and miracles. He considers what it means to live in a created world. This book is for anyone looking for a Christian engagement with science without technical jargon.

Description : Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species has changed the landscape of religious thought in many ways. There is a widespread assumption that before Darwin, all Christians believed that the world was created some 6,000 years ago over a period of 6 days. After Darwin, the first chapters of Genesis were either rejected totally by skeptics or defended vehemently in scientific creationism. This book tells a very different story. Bringing together contributions from biblical scholars, historians and contemporary theologians, it is demonstrated that both Jewish and Christian scholars read Genesis in a non-literal way long before Darwin. Even during the nineteenth century, there was a wide range of responses from religious believers towards evolution, many of them very positive. Stephen C. Barton and David Wilkinson argue that being receptive to the continuing relevance of Genesis today regarding questions of gender, cosmology, and the environment is a lively option.

Description : Debates between Christians and atheists often focus on Genesis chapters 1 through 11. Honest Questions: A Personal Commentary on Genesis 1 through 11 discusses some of the controversial questions and then gives personal insights into deeper questions. For example, going beyond, "How long did Creation take?" the first chapter of Genesis answers the question, "Who created the universe?" God is not embarrassed by honest questions. He is the author of truth. Like most evangelicals, the author believes that God inspired the writers of the Bible. So, understanding what God says is important. Faith in God and confidence in the Word of God, the Bible, is the starting point of this book. Honest Questions: A Personal Commentary on Genesis 1 through 11 presents insights into the message of Genesis, and sometimes suggests an untraditional interpretation. Each chapter also includes devotional thoughts on the current passage for meditation. Even though the message of Genesis is thousands of years old, it is relevant to life today. One can identify with the people in the stories. Popular culture today is similar to ancient civilizations. God is the same today as back then. Unlike some others, this book is not designed to convince a skeptic to become a believer, nor to help win points in a debate with an atheist. This book also does not try to explain whether modern science and Genesis are compatible, nor does it argue whether secular mainstream science is valid, or not. Honest Questions: A Personal Commentary on Genesis 1 through 11 is not an academic commentary, but the opinions of evangelical scholars are carefully considered. The book includes meditations, a wealth of Bible cross-references, citations with a bibliography, and an index. The following is a list of chapter titles. Introduction Part I Adam How long did Creation take? Did evolution really happen? Did mankind come from monkeys? Are people naturally good? Is revenge acceptable? How long did the patriarchs live? Part II Noah Did the Flood cover all of Planet Earth? Does Noah's curse justify racial prejudice? Part III Shem Is everyone a descendant of Noah? Why are there many languages? When was the Flood? Part IV Abraham Does God talk to ordinary people? Final remarks Edward B. Allen has authored a number of devotional articles for The Upper Room and The Secret Place magazines, and has led Bible study groups for over 45 years. He is a long-time member of the American Scientific Affiliation, a fellowship of Christians in the sciences and engineering. He received a Ph.D. in Computer Science degree at Florida Atlantic University. He has had a career in software engineering and has authored or coauthored over 80 professional papers.

Description : Can Christianity and evolution coexist? Traditional Christian teaching presents Jesus as reversing the effects of the Fall of Adam. However, an evolutionary view of beginnings doesn't allow for a historical Adam, making evolution seemingly incompatible with what Genesis and the apostle Paul say about him. For Christians who accept evolution and want to take the Bible seriously, this presents a faith-shaking tension. Peter Enns, an expert in biblical interpretation, offers a way forward by explaining how this tension is caused not by the discoveries of science but by false expectations about the biblical texts. Focusing on key biblical passages in the discussion, Enns demonstrates that the author of Genesis and the apostle Paul wrote to ask and answer ancient questions for ancient people; the fact that they both speak of Adam does not determine whether Christians can accept evolution. This thought-provoking book helps readers reconcile the teachings of the Bible with the widely held evolutionary view of beginnings and will appeal to anyone interested in the Christianity-evolution debate.
