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
Would you listen to Seven Days That Divide the World again? Why?
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.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Patrick Lawlor?
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 After awhile, my fascination with hearing the content superseded my frustration with the narrator's voice, and I am enjoying the content immensely.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.

Religion and Science Compliment One Another
John C.Lennox has done something quite profound here. He has shown that there is no need for religion and science to be in conflict. He will no doubt have detractors on both sides of the divide, but that is as it should be. He offers a very plausible interpretation of the Genesis account that fits in quite well with what we know of the world from science.
He points out that if we believe the scripture to be the infallible word of God then we must also acknowledge that our own interpretation of that Word is not necessarily infallible as well.
Patrick Lawlor does a fine job narrating what must be somewhat complex text at times.

A must read for theists and evolutionary atheists.
Totally loved the book, really eye opening I wish that all scientists and their students that are so easily influenced read this book. Thanks you Prof. Lennox.

Helpful material in intelligent design debate
This book provides some really helpful information in the intelligent design debate.
I did find at times it was not always very linear in its presentation,
The large appendices (about half the book) were probably more interesting than book itself
