    Walton uses what seems to me to be very solid analysis to bring out a very different way of looking at the story of Genesis. His point about looking at the text with ANE eyes and not modern 21st century ones is challenging. I very much enjoyed this book and found it extremely readable for a lay person.

    This book finally provides Christians who take a high view of scripture with a grounded, sensible, respectful way to take Genesis 1 as inspired and truth while also accepting that evolution may be correct.

    It is a must read for anyone interested in the creationism-versus-evolution debate, which has stolen entirely too much energy away from the Church's more important tasks.

    I cannot say this book has changed my view on the creation debate, since I still hold firm to my understanding. But John Walton's book is written in a style that is both accessible and thought provoking. Instead of trying to understand Genesis 1 through the lens of modern society and mudding the waters of the ongoing debate of the differing camps of creation; Mr. Walton has provided a breath of fresh air in understanding the scriptures in the context and understanding of the ancient people that originally received the divine word of God. It for me makes practical and to some degree a logical conclusion of Genesis. I recommend all flavors of the creation debate crowd to leave aside their views and enter a realm often left behind by our arguing who is right

    Very refreshing approach regarding the creation debate. Well articulated and easy to read. This book will re-open discussion on the subjet of creation vs science and Mr Walton proposol will probably be under fire. As for me, the subject is from now on, closed. Thanks to you Dr Walton.

    Creation remains one of the hottest touchstone issues for Christians. But are we reading Genesis one correctly? Or, as Walton asks in this book: "are we reading Genesis 1 literally enough"? Its an intriguing question which when understood in light of human conceptual apparatus becomes even more interesting. This book is thoughtful, compelling and focused on the text. If you are trying to decide where you stand on this issue, you will not regret giving this book your full attention.
