What did the writer of Genesis mean by the first day? Is it a literal week or a series of time periods? If I believe that the earth is 4.5 billion years old, am I denying the authority of Scripture? In response to the continuing controversy over the interpretation of the creation narrative in Genesis, John Lennox proposes a succinct method of reading and interpreting the first chapters of Genesis without discounting either science or Scripture. With examples from history, a brief but thorough exploration of the major interpretations, and a look into the particular significance of the creation of human beings, Lennox suggests that Christians can heed modern scientific knowledge while staying faithful to the biblical narrative. He moves beyond a simple response to the controversy, insisting that Genesis teaches us far more about the God of Jesus Christ and about Gods intention for creation than it does about the age of the earth. With this book, Lennox offers a careful yet accessible introduction to a scientifically-savvy, theologically-astute, and Scripturally faithful interpretation of Genesis.
John C. Lennox (PhD, DPhil, DSc) is Professor of Mathematics in the University of Oxford, Fellow in Mathematics and the Philosophy of Science, and Pastoral Advisor at Green Templeton College, Oxford. He is author of God's Undertaker: Has Science Buried God? on the interface between science, philosophy, and theology. He lectures extensively in North America and in Eastern and Western Europe on mathematics, the philosophy of science, and the intellectual defense of Christianity, and he has publicly debated New Atheists Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens. John is married to Sally; they have three grown children and four grandchildren and live near Oxford.
SandyNebraskaAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Doesn't shy away from the tough questions.April 16, 2013SandyNebraskaAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I had been looking for a book that wasn't afraid to address the tough questions that people seem to think divide science and creation, and this one did it thoroughly, eloquently, and convincingly. I would recommend it for all readers...those on both sides of the issue.
Philly PhrendWyncote, PAAge: Over 65Gender: male2 Stars Out Of 5This book contains some useful features.January 2, 2013Philly PhrendWyncote, PAAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 2Though Lennox's central premise that holds the Genesis 'Days of Creation' to be twenty-four-hour days separated by great gaps in time is kind of 'fringe,' and his dismissal of the "aion" concept without comment is disappointing, nevertheless, in his earlier chapters, particularly, he provides useful reasoning against the literalistic, doctriaire approach to the Genesis Account generally held to by "young earth" enthusiasts.
I would, however, not recommend this book except for someone well versed in the biblical perspective on the creation controversy.

Dave RandallSkowhegan, MEAge: 55-65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5ExcellantFebruary 3, 2012Dave RandallSkowhegan, MEAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5John Lennox has three strengths that are evident in this book. He knows science, he understands Biblical interpretation, and he communicates clearly and concisely. This makes him an absolutely top notch Christian apologist and makes this book worth reading. So much is written on this topic that is strictly dogmatic and uninformed that this book is truly welcome. The parallel drawn in the book between the current debate relative to the age of the earth and the debate over the center of the solar system in Galileo's time is right on.
