Description : Readers come away with a better understanding of the six-day creation argument! The framework hypothesis or literary framework view has grown in acceptance as more readers of Scripture place “science” as the authority over the interpretation of God’s Word. By re-interpreting Genesis, this view encourages Christians to disregard the plainly shared timeline of creation and instead consider it as merely figurative or poetic rather than historical and accurate. Kenneth Gentry carefully defines the framework hypothesis, while tracing its historical origins and purpose. This provides a helpful introduction both for those who know the framework hypothesis as well as any hearing the term for the first time. This important study: Presents strong exegetical arguments for the six-day creation approach to GenesisIllustrates the traditional interpretation of Genesis, a survey of exegetical arguments, and responses to alleged problemsDemonstrates the flaws in the framework argument. This book presents in a simple but clear presentation the basic argument for a six-day literal interpretation of Genesis 1. It also explains and rebuts the framework hypothesis, which is a leading view in evangelical academic circles. This book is aimed at intelligent laymen, though with the academic reader in mind, with definitions of technical terms where they are necessary and Greek and Hebrew words transliterated.

Description : The problems so many of us encounter in reading the creation accounts in Genesis result not from the accounts themselves, says the author, but from what we have come to think the biblical text says. We must "still our tongue and permit the Bible to speak." The author, professor of Old Testament at Heidelberg University in Germany and author of A Thousand Years and a Day, takes the reader step by step through the Genesis accounts, showing their relation to other creation accounts, their profound relevance to our life today, and their praise of God as Creator. - Back cover.

Description : The Dead Sea Scrolls continue to shed ancient light on both the text and interpretation of the Hebrew Bible during the Second Temple period. Among the scrolls are several copies of Genesis dating from the first century BC to the mid-first century AD that contain portions of text from the creation account. These fragmentary copies have provided an unprecedented glimpse into the condition of the text in antiquity and have also provided a unique window into certain scribal practices in the copying of the text. In addition, several texts from Qumran contain the most ancient surviving interpretations of the Genesis creation account, dating from the mid-second century BC to the first century AD. A literary analysis of these texts reveals how ancient Jews interpreted and employed the creation account. These diverse texts address issues such as the creation of various entities (the universe, angels, Eden, humanity), Adam’s dominion and knowledge in Eden, God’s election of Israel on the first Sabbath, the prohibition in the garden and Adam’s rebellion, and the Garden of Eden as an archetype of the sanctuary.

Description : What was it really like? The first moment, the first second that the universe came into being, and what process did it go through? What was on god's mind as he went about creation? Read and discover the plan and the methods and the principles which God followed as he accomplished his great work. It will be found that God acted in a reasonable, logical and practical way just as any designer or engineer might do today. He followed two grand principles. The first was that he would, "form and fill" the earth and the universe. The second is that he would "create and arrange." He would form everything than needed to be formed and then he would fill everything that needed to be filled. Secondly he would create and arrange things. Sort of as we might first pick out the furniture and then bring it home and place it in a certain location. These are the two bedrock principles of the methodology which he followed. Come and discover the rest. The reader may discover that Genesis is not an ancient myth but a true plan by which the universe was created.

Description : The description of creation as it appears in the Bible makes no sense. The first page of Genesis features no humans at all. The substance of heaven and earth arise spontaneously at God's command. Light is mentioned twice, whales appear before birds. Vegetation appears after light, but before day is separated from night. Could it be, however, that the creation story in Genesis was written as it was because that is in fact the correct order of events at the beginning of the world? Can science - while agreeing with Darwinian evolution, the big bang theory and the complexity and deep age of the universe - prove the order of events as described in the Bible to be true? In The Genesis Enigma, respected scientist Andrew Parker brings the latest discoveries to bear on this controversial and contentious question and reveals in stunning detail how the world and all of the life on it came into being.

Description : Was the Genesis story of Creation recorded in China soon after the time of Moses? China's earliest known script of more than 3200 years ago reveals it was. With evidence culled from Chinese mythology and the ancient Classics, you will see how the graph formations of just forty oracle bone characters narrate a story line based on the Genesis chapters one to three. These graph characters re-enact scenes of the creation of the firmament, of man formed from the soil and in the likeness of God, the Garden of Eden, the two trees, the Serpent, the Fall, the banishment, the sacrificed lamb, and man's mandated obedience to God. They speak out in Genesis in Ancient China to reveal the identity of the true God of earliest China to be the same God of Genesis

Description : The most incisive indictment against Christianity resides in the notion of a God who created a world in which there is untold suffering and death. Is this the best God could do? In response, most Christians will mutter something about free will or the necessity of evil to bring about God's plan for humanity. Theologians often reply by challenging the very legitimacy of the question; God only requires that we persevere. Biblical scholars, who might otherwise be expected to offer a scriptural perspective, nervously denounce any suggestion that the presence of evil may have had something to do with a primordial couple and a fruit tree. Is it any wonder that most people believe that evil must surely be an intractable component of human existence introduced, perhaps, by the very God Jews and Christians worship? This book is a response to the problem of evil that unconditionally affirms the goodness and power of God. Based on a new assessment of the Genesis creation story, one of the greatest texts ever to have emerged in human history, the author contends that God never intended for humanity to experience suffering and death.

Description : All of these statements are false: Christians are science-deniers when it comes to evolution. Real science actually lines up more with evolution than creation as found in Genesis. Fossils are evidence for evolution. The Genesis account is fully compatible with evolution. These questions need answers! What exactly is the difference between evolution right and evolution wrong? Is it possible to bend Genesis to fit evolution? How can one defend belief in a six-day creation from the onslaughts of the evolutionists? How about any questions you have? This book is a must for any Christian about to enter a public high school or university. Accepting evolution as true is the basis for three of the ten reasons Christians give up saving faith. It is time for you to arm yourself with the truth and stand your ground logically, philosophically, scientifically, and most important biblically! Ready? Let's go!

Description : Genesis is among the most controversial books of the Bible - facing increasing attacks on its credibility and its meaning within the modern Church as fashionable theories of intelligent design and progressive creationism gain support. Compromising the literal interpretation of Scripture to reconcile faith instead with faulty scientific reasoning on the history of the earth, many within the church are abandoning the very foundational truths of Christianity. Join Ron Bigalke Jr. and influential creationist leaders in discussing the myths and realities of Genesis. In The Genesis Factor you will: Unearth the historical roots of creationism in the church - from the apostle Paul and John, to the Venerable Bede, Martin Luther, John Calvin, Francis Bacon, Galileo, James Ussher, Issac Newton, and others. Learn of the 19th century controversy between leading geologists and the "scriptural geologists" in uncovering the foundations of the oft-contentious relationship of science to Christianity and the Scriptures. Read the Scriptural interpretations that answer the questions regarding the length of a Creation week day. Study point by point the recognized standards of writing history which Genesis 1-11 meet as literal history. This powerful and needed defense of Genesis includes contributors Henry M. Morris, Christopher Cone, Terry Mortenson, Eugene Merrill, Ron J. Bigalke Jr., Tas Walker, Jonathon Henry, Larry Vardiman, John Whitcomb, and Donald DeYoung. From fossil evidence, geologic evidence, and historic evidence, and more, The Genesis Factor reinforces the validity of the scriptural account of Creation, the Great Flood, and the Tower of Babel.

Description : How long were the creative days? When was “the beginning”? Does science contradict the Genesis account? What does fit the facts? As has been the case with many other doctrines that have been misrepresented or misunderstood, all we ask is that the reader of this book gives the Andrews a fair hearing. He will lay out the biblical interpretation concerning the creative days of Genesis. There are over a dozen different interpretations concerning the creative days of Genesis. In THE CREATION DAYS OF GENESIS, Andrews will consider the main four in an effort to make his point. Within, we will get the Bible’s answer to these questions, i.e., God’s Viewpoint. Moreover, Christians find real meaning and purpose in life, based on an accurate knowledge of the Creator and his creation activity, as was/is revealed in the Bible.

Description : Understand this highly debated flash point for scientific debate, academic criticism, and common confusion with this unique presentation. Delve into the technical aspects of the chronology, historicity, and significance of understanding this landmark event, including what we can learn from the Hebrew words used to describe it.Examine the numerous geological, geophysical, and paleontological indications pointing to the reality and global scope of the Flood.Learn how and why the authors' exhaustive research began, putting forth objectives, criticisms they would address, and identifying obstacles to be resolved. The Flood as described in the Book of Genesis not only shaped the global landscape, it is an event that literally forms our understanding of early biblical history. Now an experienced team of scientists and theologians has written a definitive account of the Genesis Flood with detailed research into the original biblical text and evidences unlocked by modern science and study. Often recounted and discounted as just a myth or children's story, what we find with deeper study is instead a cataclysmic event, one that truly wiped out life on our planet with the exception of those preserved through God's plan. The devastation the Genesis Flood wreaked upon a rebellious world remains an important part of the biblical narrative we should understand for what it was - a divine act of judgment on a sin-immersed world.

Description : What did the writer of Genesis mean by “the first day”? Is it a literal week or a series of time periods? If I believe that the earth is 4.5 billion years old, am I denying the authority of Scripture? In response to the continuing controversy over the interpretation of the creation narrative in Genesis, John Lennox proposes a succinct method of reading and interpreting the first chapters of Genesis without discounting either science or Scripture. With examples from history, a brief but thorough exploration of the major interpretations, and a look into the particular significance of the creation of human beings, Lennox suggests that Christians can heed modern scientific knowledge while staying faithful to the biblical narrative. He moves beyond a simple response to the controversy, insisting that Genesis teaches us far more about the God of Jesus Christ and about God’s intention for creation than it does about the age of the earth. With this book, Lennox offers a careful yet accessible introduction to a scientifically-savvy, theologically-astute, and Scripturally faithful interpretation of Genesis.

Description : "The heavens declare the glory of God"... and spark no small controversy among men. Christians have long debated certain aspects of the Genesis creation account, but in the modern era this discussion has turned especially strident, with some arguing that scientific understandings of the age of the earth and the manner of creation are fundamentally incompatible with the testimony of scripture. This is nothing less than a matter of man's word versus God's Word, we're told. Anything apart from a young-earth interpretation of Genesis is seen as a denial of the authority of scripture and an attack on the very foundation of the gospel itself. Creation in the Crossfire: A Study of the Genesis Debate in the Church examines the science/faith controversy in light of the most common arguments used to advance what might be thought of as "Young-Earth Onlyism" in the evangelical church. Topics examined here include: The creation debate and the matter of biblical authority. The creation views of ancient Jewish and Christian writers. How God communicates with man. The reliability of man's intellect and the value of his opinions. The impact of the creation debate on believers and evangelistic efforts. Textual clues suggesting that the Genesis creation account is deeper than it may at first appear to be. The nature of the "days" of Genesis 1. Misconceptions of the pre-Fall world. Animal death before the Fall of Man. The nature and extent of the Genesis 3 curse on the earth. Surprising theological implications of young-earth interpretations. The overall plan and often counterintuitive dealings of God in creation. The coming restoration of creation. The Fall of Satan and the possible role of angels in creation. Mysteries of the Genesis genealogies. Controversies surrounding the creation of man. Recent "mytho-history" and otherwise figurative interpretations of Genesis. The global v regional flood controversy. What Jesus believed about the age of the earth. Scientific evidences for an old cosmos. Written by a former young-earth creationist, Creation in the Crossfire takes aim at the Genesis debate in the spirit of "Come, let us reason together," and with an emphasis on presenting plausible alternative interpretations of the biblical text for those who may only be familiar with young-earth materials. It is the author's hope that believers will find the discussions presented here both informative and edifying, and that leaders in the church will take steps to dial back the unnecessarily inflammatory and divisive rhetoric that so often surrounds the first book of the Bible.

Description : For millions of literate people, the issue of natural and human origins remains open, both at the level of science and also at that of the biblical account of creation. The issues are poorly understood; it is not merely a matter of science vs. faith. Regarding science, the question is what science is scientific. The Genesis account of creation, on the other hand, is buried under centuries of theological orthodoxy more derived from Greek philosophy than from the language of Genesis itself. Augustinian Neo-Platonism predisposes interpretation of the Genesis account to misunderstanding. That view of instantaneous, complete and final ("fiat") creation, derived as it is from the idea of God as the quality of perfection, is contrary to the biblical story of a personal creator God who acts with purpose from a beginning to ultimate fulfillment in a new and good world. In fact, the idea of the progressive evolution of the natural world and of mankind fits better the stages of creation depicted in Genesis. But the idea of accidental or inevitable progress in autonomous nature is self-contradictory and entirely contrary to the biblical view of what might be regarded as purposeful, creative evolution. The purpose of the writer (or writers) of Genesis was to affirm that the world and humanity was the work of the one supreme God of the Jewish prophets. It is not an argument to prove the existence of God or to describe either the mechanics of creation or the antecedents of the big bang. Science that conforms to the modern definition of peer reviewed reproducibility and physical testability is one thing. Science that seeks its foundations in metaphysics as in the Bohr-Einstein debate over randomness in quantum theory vs. theoretical predictability, and the question of one universe vs. multiverse, is more metaphysical than scientific. Part of the book's argument occurs in fragments of a philosophy of language in which the difference between the use of literal language and literalis

Description : For years, the evangelical church and its members have debated whether the Bible should be interpreted literally or symbolically in regards to the age of the earth. In their groundbreaking new book, In the Beginning . . . We Misunderstood, authors Johnny V. Miller and John M. Soden say that all these arguments have missed the point. Rather, what Christians really need to know is how to interpret the Bible in its original context. Exposing the fallacies of trying to make the biblical text fit a specific scientific presupposition, Miller and Soden offer a new approach to interpreting Genesis 1 that explores the creation account based on how the original audience would have understood its teaching. First, the authors present a clear explanation of the past and present issues in interpreting the first chapter of the Bible. Second, Miller and Soden break down the creation account according to its historical and cultural context by comparing and distinguishing both the Egyptian and Mesopotamian settings. Finally, they explore common objections to help readers understand the significance that the creation account has for theology today. Christians need not look any further than Genesis 1 to find clues to its meaning. Both irenic and bathed in Scripture, In the Beginning . . . We Misunderstood will equip every believer to navigate the creation wars, armed with biblically sound explanations.
