Publisher’s Description

Denying the historicity of Adam has become increasingly present within evangelical circles.
Was Adam the first historical man? Does the answer really matter? And does it affect any important doctrines in the Bible?

Carefully examining key passages of Scripture, Versteeg proves that all human beings descended from Adam, the first man. He argues that if this is not true, the entire history of redemption documented in Scripture unravels and we have no gospel in any meaningful sense.

Includes a Foreword by the translator
