Publisher's Description

While scholarship may be turning away increasingly from the literal approach to the creation narrative of Genesis 1-3 and related texts, Dr. VanDoodewaard sets out in a fair and balanced manner the implications that such alternative hermeneutical approaches have for - not just our understanding of creation and the origins of Adam, but even basics such as our understanding of the inspiration and authority of Scripture, and of Christ and his salvific work. This is a very informative and helpful overview of a fundamental aspect of the Christian faith." Brian Wintle (Ph.D., University of Manchester), Academic Coordinator, Centre for Advanced Theological Studies, SHIATS University, Allahabad, India; Visiting Professor of New Testament, South Asia Institute for Advanced Christian Studies, Bangalore, India; General Secretary (India), Asia Theological Association.
