Having experienced this intellectual and spiritual tension, Dr. Johnny Miller and Dr. John Soden are uniquely suited to provide intellectually torn Christians with a rationale framework that addresses many seemingly irreconcilable issues. Miller and Soden begin with the pivotal question that other authors rarely ask, much less start with-the most important question of all: What did Genesis mean to the original author and original readers.
Conversant with the apparent incompatibility of science and Scripture, Miller and Soden use their expertise in biblical interpretation to present and demonstrate clear and credible principles by which this conflict should be properly evaluated and biblically harmonized.

Exposing the fallacies of trying to make the biblical text fit a specific scientific presupposition, Miller and Soden offer a new approach to interpreting Genesis 1 that explores the creation account based on how the original audience would have understood its teaching. First, the authors present a clear explanation of the past and present issues in interpreting the first chapter of the Bible. Second, Miller and Soden break down the creation account according to its historical and cultural context by comparing and distinguishing both the Egyptian and Mesopotamian settings. Finally, they explore common objections to help readers understand the significance that the creation account has for theology today.
Christians need not look any further than Genesis 1 to find clues to its meaning. Both irenic and bathed in Scripture, "In the Beginning . . . We Misunderstood" will equip every believer to navigate the creation wars, armed with biblically sound explanations.
