When faced with the choice between the Bible as the 'literal' word of God and the apparently incontrovertible findings of modern science, many contemporary Christians have tragically walked away from their faith in God and Scripture. Most frequently, their unresolvable concerns center on the words and interpretations of Genesis, chapter one.
Having experienced this intellectual and spiritual tension, Dr. Johnny Miller and Dr. John Soden are uniquely suited to provide intellectually torn Christians with a rationale framework that addresses many seemingly irreconcilable issues. Miller and Soden begin with the pivotal question that other authors rarely ask, much less start with-the most important question of all: What did Genesis mean to the original author and original readers.
Conversant with the apparent incompatibility of science and Scripture, Miller and Soden use their expertise in biblical interpretation to present and demonstrate clear and credible principles by which this conflict should be properly evaluated and biblically harmonized.
