The Importance of Genesis to the Christian, the Church, and the World
Is Genesis true history, or is it a non-literal myth? Could God have used evolution to bring about life? Are the days of Genesis literal days or, do they represent vast ages? Are the details recorded in Genesis historically true, or are we simply meant to understand the main point – that God is the Creator? How does our view of origins impact our understanding of how society should function? Many Christians struggle with these important questions. How we answer them will have consequences for our understanding of all other Christian doctrines, such as marriage, morality, and even the Gospel itself.
In this book, Dr. Jason Lisle explores these issues and how they impact the Christian, the Church, and the world. For example, what type of literature is Genesis? And how did Jesus and the Apostles understand Genesis? Do creation and evolution result in different standards of morality? The issue of origins is not merely an academic one; it has real-world consequences.
