Publisher's Summary

For thousands of years, Judeo-Christian belief has accepted this progression as truth. And now, thanks to recent scientific discoveries, the scientific community does too (though without mention of "God"). In The Genesis Enigma, respected evolutionary biologist Andrew Parker explains each parallel between Genesis and science in detail--and the closer he looks, the more amazing the parallels become. But the Genesis account has no right to be correct. The author or authors could not have known these things happened in this order, and with the highlights science has come to recognize. Ultimately, Parker argues, it must be divine inspiration that guided the writing of the Bible. This startling conclusion will make The Genesis Enigma a must-read for believers and scientists alike.

Can Biblical Truth and Scientific Fact Coexist?

Would you consider the audio edition of Genesis Enigma to be better than the print version?

The answer to this question, according to the book, is a resounding YES. Very easy to follow and thoroughly researched.

Where were you...Andrew Parker?

Mr Parker uses his vast knowledge of science to intimidate and repudiate those who do not buy into the orthodoxy he is protecting. He spends the majority of the book establishing the materialistic view of the origin of life. He dogmatically asserts that the unguided machine of evolution drove all 4.5 billion years of the universe's development (except for the first one millionth of a second or something like that) with proven, "rock-solid" facts. There was very little attempt to persuade the reader but rather more of an attempt to overwhelm those of a "lesser intellect". He then congratulates the Ancient I AM for getting the story of creation "right". I am reminded of the passage in Job chapter 38 when God spoke to Job he said to him, "Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth...? Well, Mr Parker writes as if he was a witness to it all! Yes, there was an admission towards the end of the book that there are some mysteries in the universe that may never be explained by science. But the place he left open for faith or religion seemed marginal at best... nothing that one would suffer to defend.

Evolution and the first chapter of Genesis

If you could sum up Genesis Enigma in three words, what would they be?

A clear outline of evolutionary theory with a interesting take on the first page of the Bible. It was good to hear a balanced thoughtful presentation from an agnostic scientist.

What did you like best about this story?

Clarity of presentation

What does James Adams bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

An easy on the ear reading

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?


Any additional comments?

Well written, well read, and well worth a read

Surprising book

The author displays his deep knowledge of evolution comparing it with the biblical description of creation. Adding great historical and philological culture, he wrote a very pleasant book. Even though I cannot agree with the main thesis of this work (i.e.: Genesis concords with evolution), I really enjoyed it for the great amount of scientific informations and for the agreeableness of the writing. A very special mention for the narrator's voice.
