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.

Extremely Informative, Narrator Hard to Listen To
Love this book. John Lennox is very informative and I appreciate his insights and overview of the issue. It's making me think through what I've believed and how to critically analyze scientific discovery in conjunction with Biblical revelation.
Frank Muller. I had to turn this book off the first time I tried to listen as I found Patrick Lawlor so difficult to listen to. It was so off-putting that I couldn't proceed. After awhile, my fascination with hearing the content superseded my frustration with the narrator's voice, and I am enjoying the content immensely. However, I do not care for his style of narrating.
