Publisher's Description

"Curiosity about our beginning continues to haunt the human race. It will not call off the Quest for its origins." The opening chapters of Genesis -- important at any time -- have been the focal point of controversy for more than a century. Few topics have been so hotly debated by theologians, philosophers and scientists alike. Henri Blocher argues that our primary task is to discover what these key chapters of the Bible originally meant. Only then will we be able to unravel the knotty issues surrounding human origins. Taking into account a vast array of scholarship, Blocher provides a detailed study of creation week, the image of God, the significance of male and female, the garden covenant, the Fall, the curse and the promise of redemption. He also offers significanct theological insights into the creation-evolution debate.

    While I disagree thoroughly with Blocher's point of view (that Gen 1-3 was written as poetry, not history and thus should be seen as allegory, not literally), he certainly develops his point of view in a careful, reasoned way. He shows respect for the traditional literal view and clearly shows what he believes to be the superiority of his view. He also has some unique insights into the symbolism of Genesis (eg, the woman was made out of the rib. Not the head, not the foot, the rib...thus demonstrating the equality and side-by-side nature of the husband/wife relationship).A good read.
