Publisher's Description

The present creation-evolution debate is often cast as a choice between two positions: naturalistic evolution over millions of years or miraculous creation six thousand years ago. When simplified, this choice is often presented as one between science and the Bible, a choice that leaves much ground between the two views yet to be
discussed.

A Biblical Case for an Old Earth seeks to address the gap between theistic evolutionism and young-earth creationism by finally paying due attention to the biblical aspect of the debate. Both a scientist and a preacher, David Snoke presents a theological study of several themes in the evolution discussion, including the balance theme of Scripture and the day-age interpretation. Complete with an appendix that gives a literal translation of Genesis 1-11, this intriguing study will interest both scientists and lay Christians who want to dig into the faith-science intersection.

He has published over seventy articles in scientific journals and two scientific books. He also has published five philosophical articles in the Perspectives on Science and Christian Faith, a journal of the American Scientific Affiliation.

The thoughts in this book are guaranteed to send shock waves through the Christian community. Although David Snoke presents completely reasonable arguments for an old earth, many of his conclusions will cause consternation for believers. As he critiques the prevailing viewpoints, he also carefully points out the theological inconsistencies. Diligent readers will be exposed to many new ideas, which may cause an earnest evaluation of firmly-held beliefs.
The author candidly admits that his research was designed to show how the Bible agrees with science. However, he urges his audience to thoughtfully consider if the facts he furnishes align with Scripture. A careful reading of his book reveals the biblical foundation upon which his opinions rest, but Christians still may not embrace these views with wholehearted abandon. Snoke understands the problems associated with his rendition of this issue, and he openly discusses some of these objections As his logic and faith formulate compelling arguments, readers will dig deeper into their Bibles to follow his line of reasoning. He is not afraid to tackle the harder questions of whether animals died before the Fall, or if the Flood was only a localized event. In addition, the author fully realizes the association of liberal theology and an old earth, thereby making his job of persuasion that much more difficult among evangelical believers. These pages offer an honest and urgent appeal to put aside any cherished beliefs and to take a hard look at this evidence.
Whether the earth is thousands or millions years old, the meticulous research of David Snoke is a valuable arsenal of ideas in this battle of the ages. – Joyce Handzo, Christian Book Previews.com

    I received this book for Christmas. I read the entire book in 4 days. I loved it. I've always believed in Young Earth Creation, but the author of this book convincingly presented Old Earth Creation in the form of Day-Age. For a while now I have been considering OEC, and this book was a great help.
