Review by Booklist Review

A collection of essays by 22 biblical scholars who discuss one of the most controversial sections of the Bible the first 11 chapters of Genesis. The text poses questions such as, Were the days of creation 24 hours long? Were there people before Adam and Eve? Did Noah's flood cover the entire world? Does Genesis 9 justify capital punishment? Two scholars answer each of the 11 queries based on their readings of the Genesis text, one pro and one con. Such authorities as Terence Fretheim, Carl Henry, Duane Christensen, and Joel Heck contribute to this unique point-counterpoint debate. The resulting dialogue serves to open up the biblical text and broaden the reader's understanding of the creation stories. Chapter notes. SEM. 222'.11067 Bible. O.T. Genesis I-XI Criticism, interpretation, etc. [OCLC] 86-17998
