Did Adam Exist? (Christian Answers to Hard Questions)
Poythress, Vern S.
“Most non–scientists don’t know what to make of scientific arguments questioning the historicity of Genesis, and most theologians do not feel competent to evaluate the scientific arguments or their reliability. Dr. Poythress, who is well informed on the subject, breaks down the main scientific arguments about human origins in ways accessible to the general reader.”See All

“Poythress boldly and knowledgeably tackles some of the scientific reasoning that has been used to argue that humans are nothing more than advanced apes.... He exemplifies the right use of critical thinking in science and in faith.”See All
