Product Description

When faced with the choice between the Bible as the "literal" word of God and the apparently incontrovertible findings of modern science, many contemporary Christians have tragically walked away from their faith in God and Scripture. Most frequently, their unresolvable concerns center on the words and interpretations of Genesis, chapter one.

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.

Publisher's Description

For years, the evangelical church and its members have debated whether the Bible should be interpreted literally or symbolically in regards to the age of the earth. In their groundbreaking new book, "In the Beginning . . . We Misunderstood," authors Johnny V. Miller and John M. Soden say that all these arguments have missed the point. Rather, what Christians really need to know is how to interpret the Bible in its original context.

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.
