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 to-gether 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.


A community of believers tries, by the guidance of teh Holy Spirit, to come to an understanding of a Scriptural position or passage by thinking together, talking and dialog together, pray together, and by agreeing to disagree agreeably if 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.
-Victor P. Hamilton
