Coming to Grips with Genesis: Biblical Authority and the Age of the Earth
Fourteen theological scholars address key topics related to the age of earth, which is the crucial issue of debate in the church today regarding origins. Bringing to bear rigorous biblical, theological, and historical arguments in favor of a six-day creation, the global Flood, and a young earth, they also 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 for young-earth creationism. As such, this book can serve as a versatile supplement to other works, but 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.
