Coming to Grips with Genesis

Coming to Grips with Genesis examines rigorous scholarly biblical and theological arguments in favor of a young earth and is a substantial historical, theological, and exegetical defense of the biblical account of creation.

In the just-published scholarly book, Coming to Grips with Genesis: Biblical Authority and the Age of the Earth, fourteen evangelical theologians bring together the most rigorous, up-to-date biblical and historical arguments in favor of reading Genesis chapters 1–11 as factual history.

No one who accepts the idea of millions of years or says that the age of the earth doesn’t matter can ignore the careful arguments that Coming to Grips with Genesis presents in favor of a six-day creation, the global Flood, and a young earth. It will also strengthen the convictions of those who do believe Genesis.

The question of the age of the creation is not just a debate about science, but more importantly about Scripture. Are God’s words our final authority? Can they really be interpreted in a way that accommodates millions of years?
