Product Description

Andrew S. Kulikovsky brings to the debate among creationists a robust reading of the relevant biblical texts, including the opening chapters of Genesis. He argues that biblical authority applies to the natural world of the sciences and history as well as to matters of faith and conduct. Scripture itself clearly points to a recent creation of the earth. Its propositions, however, are readily ignored by accepting the authority of current mainstream scientific theories too quickly and naively.
In his far reaching exploration, Kulikovsky takes us into the territories of scientific and biblical interpretation, and changing views of nature in the history of both science and theology.
Kulikovsky's call to return to biblical authority is relevant to all evangelicals, whether convinced that the earth is recent or old. All who genuinely seek the truth in these matters will find this book both refreshing and challenging, as it seeks to get to the crux of what has been an issue of disagreement among Christians from before the era of Darwin.

Editorial Reviews

The grand themes that should enliven our thinking are Creation, the Fall and Restoration. In each of these areas, the author discusses the views of scholars, explains their often conflicting perspectives, and shows that biblical theology provides a sure guide for those seeking answers...It is highly recommended to anyone seeking to engage with these issues in greater depth.

Creation, Fall, Restoration: A Biblical Theology of Creation provides a refreshingly thorough yet eminently readable treatment of Genesis 1-3. Kulikovsky rightly argues that allowing the conclusions of modern science to determine our understanding of creation is basically a denial of the evangelical doctrine of sola scriptura. Sadly, many otherwise excellent evangelical scholars provide a confused or inconsistent hermeneutic in their treatment of the early chapters of Genesis, allowing the current conclusions of modern science to trump normative exegesis of the biblical text. Kulikovsky's work consistently exposes the faulty logic of such an approach. He discusses the role of science in biblical hermeneutics; the view of the Genesis creation account throughout church history; the overall purpose and function of the Genesis account; the days of creation; and the creation of mankind, the garden of Eden and the fall of man and its consequences. While not shying away from controversy, Kulikovsky ably interacts with relevant works representing diverse points of view. Even for those who do not share his conclusions, Kulikovsky's work is comprehensive and thought-provoking. In my thinking, his basic approach and treatment of the creation account is right on target!

Andrew Kulikovsky's volume provides its readers with a clear and current overview of the debate among biblical scholars about the interpretation of the creation week in Genesis 1-2 as well as Adam's fall (Gen. 3).

"Since Scripture alone reports the details of divine creation, Kulikovsky directs readers back to the biblical record itself. Debates pitting science against creationism too often ignore the biblical revelation. Creationist conferences and consultations primarily explain observable phenomena that support the scientific accuracy of biblical creationism and banish biblical authority to the footnotes. Kulikovsky, however, proves that a young earth springs from a no-nonsense reading of the biblical text. Creation, Fall, Restoration dissolves the old earth fog that envelopes inadequate arguments for a young earth."

    Andrew Kulikovsky acknowledges the concept (originating with Francis Bacon) that God has revealed Himself in two books general revelation and special revelation (p.18) and spends the first two chapters distinguishing one from the other, recognizing the unfortunately all too common occurrence that whenever the two books seemingly conflict, Such conflicts are nearly always resolved by simply reinterpreting the special revelation in Scripture implying that the two are not equal. (p. 18-19).When discussing general revelation, Kulikovsky observes that It is quite common for theologians and scientists to view science and general revelation as one and the same thing. In attempting to address this mistaken view he argues that the physical world is not a second book of revelation from God, but a signpost pointing to God the almighty Creator. (p.25)The book also highlights a major problem in associating general revelation with scientific knowledge about creation; if general revelation [i.e. our scientific knowledge about nature] has been wrong many times, then how can it be viewed as authoritative, let alone infallible? (p.22)There is an excellent chapter called 'Creation, Preservation, and Dominion', which looks at the relationship between God, man, and his environment, and the ways in which environmentalists have distorted Gods intentions for us as stewards over His creation. The key point for me in this chapter was that although caring for the environment (including the plants and animals) that God has provided is very important, a biblical view of creation means that ultimately, the needs of human beings surpass the needs of any other creature or plant. (p.259).While there are many good books available by creationists on a range of topics, CFR is one of the few books available that provide a thorough summary and defense of biblical creationism.
