The Lost World of Adam and Eve enters into the debate over the Bible and human origins. Adam and Eve emerge as archetypal but real individuals chosen for roles and functions.

Release Date: 2010-08-21
Genre: Religion

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.

Gut und B se

Author: Jörn Kiefer
Publisher: Verlag Herder GmbH
ISBN: 9783451847936
Release Date: 2018-11-19
Genre: Religion

Nicht zufällig beginnt das theologische Nachdenken über Gut und Böse bis heute immer wieder mit den ersten Kapiteln der Genesis. Sie sind bewusst als Anfang der Tora konzipiert und wollen selbst vom Anfang erzählen – vom Anfang der Menschheit und darin auch vom Anfang des Guten und Bösen. Texte, die so im Fokus stehen, werden bekanntlich oft theologisch überfrachtet mit Interessen und Vorurteilen. Diese Untersuchung möchte die biblischen Texte von dogmatischem Ballast befreien und deren ureigenen Beitrag zu der immer noch brisanten Frage nach Gut und Böse zur Sprache bringen.

Adam and the Genome

Author: Scot McKnight
Publisher: Brazos Press
ISBN: 9781493406746
Release Date: 2017-01-31
Genre: Religion

Genomic science indicates that humans descend not from an individual pair but from a large population. What does this mean for the basic claim of many Christians: that humans descend from Adam and Eve? Leading evangelical geneticist Dennis Venema and popular New Testament scholar Scot McKnight combine their expertise to offer informed guidance and answers to questions pertaining to evolution, genomic science, and the historical Adam. Some of the questions they explore include: - Is there credible evidence for evolution? - Do we descend from a population or are we the offspring of Adam and Eve? - Does taking the Bible seriously mean rejecting recent genomic science? - How do Genesis's creation stories reflect their ancient Near Eastern context, and how did Judaism understand the Adam and Eve of Genesis? - Doesn't Paul's use of Adam in the New Testament prove that Adam was a historical individual? The authors address up-to-date genomics data with expert commentary from both genetic and theological perspectives, showing that genome research and Scripture are not irreconcilable. Foreword by Tremper Longman III and afterword by Daniel Harrell.
