The Lost World of Genesis One

Full Product Description

In this astute mix of cultural critique and biblical studies, John H. Walton presents and defends twenty propositions supporting a literary and theological understanding of Genesis 1 within the context of the ancient Near Eastern world and unpacks its implications for our modern scientific understanding of origins.

Ideal for students, professors, pastors and lay readers with an interest in the intelligent design controversy and creation-evolution debates, Walton's thoughtful analysis unpacks seldom appreciated aspects of the biblical text and sets Bible-believing scientists free to investigate the question of origins.

The Lost World of Genesis One by John H Walton was published by Intervarsity Press in July 2009 and is our 6191st best seller. The ISBN for The Lost World of Genesis One is 9780830837045.
