For centuries the story of Adam and Eve has resonated through the corridors of history, Art and theology. But in the modern world, taking it at face value is no longer suitable. And even for many Christians today who want to take the authority of Scripture seriously, insisting on a “literal” understanding of Genesis 2-3 looks painfully like a “tear here” strip between faith and science. How can we resolve this divorce?
Following his ground-breaking book The Lost World of Genesis One, John Walton now backlights this foundational story with the ancient world of the Bible. Walton gives us context, insights and clarity to reset the discussion and move forward.
“I wish every Christian would read this book. Walton is helping an entire generation of people- believers and sceptics alike- learn how to read Genesis as it was meant to be read” – John Ortberg
