Product Description

Today's evangelical community faces a multitude of questions about the creation of the cosmos and the beginning of human history and-quite naturally-we look to the Bible for answers about the origins and meaning of human history. But what are we to do with the stories in the first two chapters of Genesis?

Reading Genesis 1-2: An Evangelical Conversation brings together the voices of five prominent evangelical scholars who take on difficult interpretive questions that arise from reading the Bible's first two chapters. Richard Averbeck, Todd Beall, John Collins, Tremper Longman, and John Walton offer their perspectives in a point-counterpoint style.

Drawing on a wealth of theological, linguistic, and historical expertise, this collection is characterized by a close attention to the biblical text and a mutual respect that often sorely lacks in the discussion of origins in the modern evangelical world.

Publisher's Description

Seven specialists in Old Testament theology and interpretation come together to offer a variety of needed biblical perspectives and insights on how to interpret the first two chapters of Genesis correctly. Evangelical scholars, college and seminary professors (and their students), and pastors will benefit from this title. This is the only book of its kind that involves a critical and comparative assessment of the early Genesis narratives by Old Testament scholars actually working in the field.

From the Introduction by Victor P. Hamilton: "

"Even in the wider evangelical portion of conservative Protestantism there are emerging divergent perspectives on reading Gen 1-2. To some this is salutary. To others it is a slippery slope. The essays to follow in this volume, all by highly esteemed and well-published OT evangelical scholars, will demonstrate this hermeneutical diversity . . .

A community of believers tries, by the guidance of the Holy Spirit, to come to an understanding of a scriptural position or passage by thinking together, talking and dialoguing together, praying together, and by agreeing to disagree agreeably if the case need be. The title of the Bryan Institute symposium which produced this collection of essays was 'Reading Genesis 1-2: An Evangelical Conversation.' To which I say, let the conversation continue.""

Chapters include:

RICHARD E. AVERBECK--Genesis 1 and 2 as Observational Cosmogony and Cosmology: A Literary, Inter-textual, and Contextual Reading

TODD BEALL--Reading Genesis 1 and 2: A Literal Approach

C. JOHN COLLINS--Reading Genesis 1-2 with the Grain: Analogical Days

TREMPER LONGMAN III--What Genesis 1-2 Teaches (and What It Doesn't)

JOHN H. WALTON--Reading Genesis One as Ancient Cosmology

KENNETH J. TURNER--Teaching Genesis 1 at a Christian College

JUD DAVIS -- Unresolved Questions: Evangelicals and Genesis 1-2

A "response" section follows each chapter, in which each author has the opportunity to reply to the viewpoint presented. It is truly a conversational format.
