Product Description

The origin of death, deep time, geneological gaps, and various hermeneutical approaches to early biblical texts are just a few of the issues dealt with by creation scientists. Investigations of all these and more are on display in Coming to Grips with Genesis, edited by Dr. Terry Mortenson with essays by himself and other teachers and writers defending the straightforward interpretation of Genesis chapters 1 through 11.
Attacked, dismissed, maligned, and relegated to the status of mythology, the first eleven chapters of Genesis are difficult for some Christians to believe due to liberal theologians, secular science and others holding God's Word in low esteem. But Mortenson and his team of creationist scholars, in the spirit of the late Dr. Henry Morris, write, teach, debate and lecture on creationist topics, and here address elements of scientific creationism in depth that frequently come under fire. Writing intelligently and clearly, Mortenson and over a dozen contributors provide an apologetic text that answers the tough questions many people, both Christians and non-Christians alike, struggle with in their attempts to clarify the theology of Genesis.

Publisher Description

Fourteen different scholars address key topics related to the age of the earth, which is the crucial issue of debate in the church regarding origins (i.e., most old-earth proponents, like young-earth creationists, reject biological evolution). Bringing to bear rigorous scholarly biblical and theological arguments in favor of a young earth, they also address much needed discussion regarding a number of contemporary interpretations of the book of Genesis. A substantial historical, theological, and exegetical defense of the biblical account of Creation, the book is designed for seminary and Bible college professors and students, ministers, missionaries, and others in ministry work.
Chapters in the book include:
  • Forewords by Dr. John MacArthur, President of The Master’s Seminary and Senior Pastor of Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, CA; and the late Dr. Henry Morris, Founder and President Emeritus, Institute for Creation Research
  • Detailed statistical analysis of the verbs of Genesis
  • A study of Genesis 5 & 11 genealogies as strict chronology
  • A critique of the Intelligent Design movement
  • Jesus’ words and teachings – do they address the issue of a young earth?

      An excellent work on the Young Earth - Old Earth Age controversy and Genesis 1-11.

      After reading "Coming to Grips with Genesis" thoroughly cover to cover, I feel it should be a must read in seminary classes dealing with Genesis. The authors do an excellent job of showing some of the misrepresentations that are being presented in other commentaries regarding the interpretation of Genesis. It exposes the problems with the Old Earth position being advocated by those who seek to place the transient soup du jour scientific theory of origins above the clear word of God. I highly recommend this book!

      The only reason I gave it a 4 on product quality is that it is a paperback and it is the type of book that gets handled a lot and marked up. I have worn it out a bit and wish there was a hardback available. I would really like to have this book in WORDsearch Bible software and Accordance and Logos.

      "Coming to Grips with Genesis" is a collection of 14 articles discussing the different interpretations of Genesis 1-11. Though written by 14 separate scholars, there's surprisingly little overlap of material and a high consistency in quality.

      It's written in a formal tone. Some articles get somewhat technical when talking about the original language, and the authors assume you know something about Hebrew grammar. However, the footnotes explain a technical point in more detail for those who don't know this information. There's excellent footnoting, so you always know where the information or quote came from. I also liked that the authors quoted the people in question so the reader could see for themselves what was said. Overall, if you have questions about the topics covered or want to be better able to argue the points, then I'd highly recommend this book.

      Chapter 1, 2, 3, and 14 explored how Christian theological leaders before the 19th century viewed Genesis 1-11, especially how long they thought God took to create everything. Chapters 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 discussed the different ways Genesis 1 & 2 are interpreted, how to properly interpret Scripture as a whole and how that applies to Genesis 1 & 2, and is nature/general revelation equal in authority to Scripture/special revelation.

      Chapter 9 talked about Noah's Flood, especially about the timeline of what happened and what one would expect to find now in the rock layers as a result of the Flood. Chapter 10 discussed the type of genealogies are in Genesis 5 and 11 and how accurate they are for chronological purposes. Chapter 11 and 12 pointed out how Jesus and the apostles viewed Genesis (as real history and real people or otherwise). Chapter 13 discussed how having death and suffering before creation was completed (as long geological ages demands) affects Christian theology.

      I received this book as a review copy from the publisher.

      One of the best books on creation ever written. Very similar to the Answers Books by Ken Ham.

      This is an excellent book that gives solid reasons for the historicity of the book of Genesis.I highly recommend it for anyone who values the inerrancy of God's word and for those who believe that Genesis 1 - 11 is myth but is willing to read an intelligent & well framed response.
