    Best Interpretation of Genesis I have ever read

    As a Christian for almost 40 years, I have long struggled with the Young Earth Creation (YEC) account in Genesis 1. It has been the "trip stone" for me when it comes to believing the inerrancy of the bible. It has never made sense to me that intelligent and educated 21st Century Christians believe that the earth and cosmos is only 6000 years ago (or even 10,000 years old has some YEC's seem to suggest); this despite the mountain of geologic and scientific evidence that supports a finding that the world is at least millions (if not billions) of years old. Why would God create a world with characteristics that look deceptively ancient? I have been reading many books over the past few years to reconcile this without success. Walton's book is the first scholarly analysis of Genesis 1 that makes sense to me.

    I don't know why Walton's book has not obtained more publicity in the Christian community. it think it is a must read for all Christians, particularly those who are espousing the YEC view to students or others.

    This book is one of those books that rarely comes along. An exegetical masterpiece in Genesis 1 that places us the reader that much closer to the original understanding.

    An excellent thesis presenting a excellent thought on creation, allowing evolution to be considered as a strong possibility with (of course) God being in control.

    We Protestants hold to the historical-grammatical method of interpretation. Walton uses his knowledge of how the ancients looked at the world to uncover the meaning of Genesis 1. Very compelling!

    I always have had an emotional turmoil because I want to believe. This helped me very much.
