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.

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."

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.
