Genesis 1 - 3: Science? History? Theology
'In an area often charged with misconceptions and problems, John Thompson cuts through to the heart of the science theology issues presented by the Genesis narrative. His clear exposition answers many of the questions thoughtful Christians feel guilty to raise, that often go unanswered, while the literary approach to the text is both scholarly and evangelical. The assertion that Genesis 1-3 is neither history nor science but ‘sets forth in unmistakable terms certain great affirmations about God, Humankind and the World’ cannot be overemphasized. This paper should be widely read by thoughtful Christians and consulted by every preacher who seeks to expound a proper biblical view of Creation. By so doing much divisive and unnecessary debate would be avoided.'
