The real Genesis creation story : a credible translation and explanation at last

Open All Close All

  • "Within the biblical community, the creation versus creation debate has become an acute problem. Currently, four main ideas attempt to explain the Genesis creation story: young-Earth creation theology, gap theology, day-age theology, and literary interpretations. Each idea has its strong points, countered by major objections. The age of the Earth has emerged as a major issue, calculated to have been created in 4004 BC by Anglican Archbishop James Ussher. Any suitable solution to the Genesis problem must respect the integrity of the Bible, yet accept the evidence of science in regard to time. A task accomplished in a no-holds-barred search for truth addressing the following: a credible translation of Genesis chapters 1 and 2 that corrects over 2200 years of error; how solid scientific evidence in support of time easily harmonizes with an accurate translation; Genesis chapters 1 and 2 are not two conflicting creation accounts, but rather two complementary narratives; an ancient document, accepted by most biblical scholars, that has hindered a proper explanation of the Genesis story; ten key verbs -- incorrectly explained -- which control traditional interpretations of the seven-day creation chronicle. - Jacket."
