Description

In Coming to Grips with Genesis fourteen theological scholars address key topics related to the age of the earth, which is the crucial issue of debate in the church today regarding origins. These authors present rigorous biblical, theological, and historical arguments in favor of a six-day creation, the global Flood. Also, they provide much-needed critiques of a number of contemporary old-earth interpretations of the book of Genesis.

This fresh defense of the literal history of Genesis 1-11 nicely complements other studies which focus more on the scientific evidence of young-earth creation. As such, this book can serve as a versatile supplement to other works. But it is also designed to be used as a stand-alone text for seminary and Bible college professors and students, pastors, missionaries, and others who want in-depth apologetic resources.

Coming to Grips With Genesis gives a detailed analysis of the language of Genesis 1. It also gives a defense of the strict chronologies of the genealogies in Genesis 5 & 11. Furthermore this book presents sound reasons for rejecting millions of years of death before Adam and a careful reflection on Jesus’ teachings about the young earth.
