Adam: First and the Last Book by Simon Turpin
Are you prepared to defend the biblical account of Adam as a living man formed by God? Many theologians, pastors, and philosophers now teach that the Adam we find in Genesis was a myth, story, or parable. In Adam: First and the Last, Simon Turpin – Ex. Director of Answers in Genesis, UK/ Europe, reveals why understanding Adam to have been the first man created is critical for a consistent theological understanding of the biblical message of creation, the fall, and redemption.
“If you deny the ‘First Adam,’ not only do you deny the sufficiency of Scripture and undermine its authority, but you ultimately attack the life, teaching, and person of the ‘Last Adam,’ our Lord Jesus Christ.” Ken Ham, CEO of The Ark Encounter, Creation Museum, & Answers in Genesis
The very teachings of Jesus regarding creation and the flood are being attacked on the basis that, because of His human nature, there was error in some of His teaching. The theory of biological evolution, though lacking evidence, is why many reject Adam as a historical individual or see him as anything other than the originating head of the human race.
The church is facing a crisis because too few of her people and leaders understand the consequences of combining the Bible and evolution. Sadly today, more and more evangelical Christian scholars are having to redefine passages of Scripture because they have adopted the idea of evolution and millions of years into their thinking. These questions may be the biggest doctrinal issues facing our generation, and the church’s attitude toward them could be a defining moment in Christianity.
Adam: First and the Last will prepare you, your family, and your church to stand against today’s false teachers and strengthen your faith in the infallible Word of God. Turpin offers a true biblical apologetic that will be used for decades and even centuries to help the Body of Christ hold fast to their confession of faith without wavering (Hebrews 10:23).
