In response to the continuing controversy over the interpretation of the creation narrative in Genesis, John Lennox in Seven Days That Divide the World: The Begining According to Genesis and Science proposes a succinct method of reading and interpreting the first chapters of Genesis without discounting either science or Scripture.
With examples from history, a brief but thorough exploration of the major interpretations, and a look into the particular significance of the creation of human beings, Lennox suggests that Christians can heed modern scientific knowledge while staying faithful to the biblical narrative. He moves beyond a simple response to the controversy, insisting that Genesis teaches us far more about the God of Jesus Christ and about God's intention for creation than it does about the age of the earth. With this book, Lennox offers a careful yet accessible introduction to a scientifically-savvy, theologically-astute, and Scripturally faithful interpretation of Genesis.

Q: In regard to this book the question is when did sin start and what are the results of sin? If sin started for the creation of Genesis when Man sinned then the earth cannot be millions of year old
The author of the book subscribes to the idea that sin began in the Garden of Eden as recorded in Genesis. Death was the result of sin, however 'death' is limited to man's spiritual/ moral condition rather than the tradional interpretation of global impact. We recommend reading the book for the author's specific arguments on this point.
