Description

John Walton's work in Genesis 1-3 offers a fresh perspective on this complex issue by seeking to understand the message of Scripture within its ancient context.
A close reading of the Genesis creation account and an evaluation of its ancient Near Eastern setting raise the question of whether the Bible provides modern scientific information related to our understanding of the natural world (e.g., cosmology, biology, or human origins), or whether it offers a theological, rather than material, framework for thinking about the cosmosu2014for example, God made everything and is sovereign over it. This question in turn leads us to inquire whether today's scientific conclusions regarding old earth, common descent, and parentage of the human race necessarily conflict with the Bible or theology.
