Description : An amazing book that will leave the reader uneasy and surprised by the synergy between the biblical text and modern science. In this work, Bishop Robson Rodovalho and Professor Gerald Schroeder take a fantastic journey into the unknown, taking a scientific look at the text of the Holy Scriptures and bringing new insights that may surprise readers who are used to traditional biblical translations. In an extensive work, the authors guided their study in the translation of the Bible in ancient Hebrew, drawing a parallel with modern cosmology and the most recent experiments in Quantum Physics. The authors argue that, although the Bible is not a scientific manual, it does contain statements with scientific implications. They cite as examples the creation of the Universe, the origin and development of life. For this very reason, in this work, they argue that contrary to what many people think, there is no need for a dichotomy between Science and the Bible. for the authors, the original biblical texts are consistent with scientific points of view and with the discoveries of modern physics, cosmology, biology, anthropology, geology, history, chemistry, mathematics, sociology and neurology.

Description : The first chapters of Genesis continue to be a great enigma to the modern world. However, scientific evidence can place real constraints on what these stories originally meant, both as the inspired word of God and a record of the real experiences of ancient peoples. Geological, archaeological and literary evidence shows that the biblical account is consistent with a setting in the earliest history of Mesopotamian civilization. Starting from a scientific viewpoint, this commentary provides a systematic analysis of the meaning of the first eleven chapters of Genesis in a Mesopotamian context.

Description : Can the Biblical account of creation be reconciled with current scientific beliefs? For over a century, the Holy Bible’s story of creation has come under considerable scrutiny and derision by the scientific community. The length of creation days, the Biblical order of creation, and man’s origin have all been the subjects of heated debates — debates that cast further doubts on Biblical accuracy. But is such derision warranted? The Theory of Creation boldly answers that very question. Rather than denounce other theories or repudiate accepted scientific beliefs, this is a comprehensive and objective analysis of the first story of the Bible (Genesis 1:1 - 2:4). Each verse is carefully examined for its scientific meaning, the original Hebrew text is often referenced, popular theories are explored, and the purpose and implications of God’s actions are addressed. Finally, the Biblical account of creation is compared to the scientific record. In this era of moral relativism, when Biblical values are condemned and the sanctity of the Holy Bible is often ridiculed, validation of the creation story would be a source of inspiration for believers everywhere. In The Theory of Creation, Jim Schicatano answers the enduring questions of science and resolves the Biblical Creation debate.

Description : The Challenge of Creation is a completely revised and vastly expanded edition of The Science Of Torah. That work was widely hailed as the best book of its kind for its honesty and thoroughness of approach. The Challenge of Creation builds upon its approach, covering more issues and in greater depth. Carefully, methodically, and eschewing sensationalistic or dogmatic claims in favor of reasoned analysis, it shows how some of the greatest Jewish thinkers explained Judaism and Genesis in a way that complements modern science rather than conflicts with it. The Challenge of Creation is an invaluable resource for anyone grappling with conflicts between science and religion. It is a profound work that is sure to become a classic

Description : The Language of Creation is a commentary on the primeval stories from the book of Genesis. It is often difficult to recognize the spiritual wisdom contained in these narratives because the current scientific worldview is deeply rooted in materialism. Therefore, instead of looking at these stories through the lens of modern academic disciplines, such as sociology, psychology, or the physical sciences, this commentary attempts to interpret the Bible from its own cosmological perspective.By contemplating the ancient biblical model of the universe, The Language of Creation demonstrates why these stories are foundational to western science and civilization. It rediscovers the archaic cosmic patterns of heaven, earth, time, and space, and sees them repeated at different levels of reality. These fractal-like structures are first encountered in the narrative of creation and then in the stories of the Garden of Eden, Cain and Abel, and the flood. The same patterns are also revealed in the visions of Ezekiel, the book of Daniel, and the miracles of Moses. The final result of this contemplation is a vision of the cosmos centered on the role of human consciousness in creation.

Description : As a part of the Counterpoints series, Four Views on the Historical Adam clearly outlines four primary views on Adam held by evangelicals, featuring top-notch proponents of each view presenting their positions in their own words and critiquing the positions with which they disagree. You will come away with a better understanding of the key biblical and theological issues at stake and of the implications of Adam for contemporary Christian witness and church life. Contributors include Denis O. Lamoureux, John H. Walton, C. John Collins, and William Barrick. Each focuses his essay on answering the following questions: What is the biblical case for your viewpoint, and how do you reconcile it both with modern science and with passages and potential interpretations that seem to counter it? In what ways is your view more theologically consistent and coherent than other views? What are the implications of your view for the spiritual life and public witness of the church and individual believers, and how is your view a healthier alternative for both? Concluding reflections by pastor-scholars Gregory A. Boyd and Philip Graham Ryken highlight the significance of the topic in the faith of everyday believers.

Description : Since ancient times man has sought to understand the origins of the universe around him, and his place within it. Such speculations were once the sole purview of religion, but since the Enlightenment, science and rationality have also attempted to explain these mysteries, but from an opposing perspective. Conflict resulted and both sides dug in, clinging to dogmas that precluded any consideration of the other side. "Genesis, Zen and Quantum Physics" enters the fray with a very unique approach. Believing that harmony, rather than conflict, defines the relationship between the Genesis account and modern science; the authors have retranslated the creation story according to the ancient Hebrew pictographic language and in the context of the nomadic culture from which the language and narratives arose. The resulting translation and its accompanying commentary challenge the common understanding of God, science, and the very reason for man's existence. By harmonizing an accurate biblical account with cutting edge scientific understanding, the authors present a mature religious ideal and an appreciation for the understanding of the ancients for modern scientific concepts. This is a book that will redefine your understanding of God, the world around you and your role within it.

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 : 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 : 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 : Genesis is the beginning of the Bible but it has got the beginning of everything else in it. Here is the beginning of the universe; the beginning of history; the beginning of the human race; the beginning of marriage and family life; the beginning of government and civilisation; the beginning of the arts; the beginning of music; the beginning of sin and the beginning of death. The book of Genesis begins with the living God and it ends with a dead man, and the last words in this book are “in a coffin”. That, in a sense, sums up the message of the book. History began with the living God but it very soon became about a dead man, and the tragic story of Genesis tells us about that. You will never answer the biggest questions in life unless you can go back to the beginning. It provides the clue to such questions as: “Where did the world come from? Why am I here? What is life all about? Is there any purpose at all?” You have to go back to the beginning to find the answers. Therefore, the book of Genesis is a thrilling book; it gives you the answers to such questions.

Description : Reclaiming the Source is essentially a commentary on the first eleven chapters of the Book of Genesis, but one which is undergirded by a fundamental question: do Christians take the Bible seriously as an accurate record of infallible divine revelation? Schleicher presents the challenging suggestion that the problem with many creationist proponents is not their biblical literalism, but that they feel the need to use science to validate the Bible. Schleicher suggests that the Bible stands alone as its own way of knowing, rather than validated by any other means. One remarkable aspect of this commentary is that, with one or two exceptions, all of the science references in this book are from non-religious, certainly non-creationist scientists-strongly credentialed, even highly acclaimed-who have made sound contributions to their field but who also have some ideas that have been rejected by the scientific community. These rejected ideas combine to form a scientific description of the physical world that runs remarkably parallel to a straightforward reading of the first chapters of Genesis. It's an interesting point, but Reclaiming the Source is not a book about science. Schleicher's literal reading of Genesis suffuses his book, but this is not a creation vs. evolution debate. It is a book about a book-Genesis-and how it informs what we think about everything else.

Description : According to Professor Gerald Schroeder, a nuclear physicist from MIT, God’s creation took 15 billion years, but also six twenty-four hour days as Scripture states! The answer lies in time dilation in our universe. Things that look very small, like distant stars, are actually very large. And times that seem very short, like six days for all of creation, become very long—even as long as 15 billion years. “How can these things be?” Just read this book.

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.
