Coming to Grips with Genesis


SKU: 1196 Category:


Biblical Authority and the Age of the Earth

Fourteen authors present rigorous biblical and theological arguments in favor of a young earth and global Flood and also adress a number of comtemporary old-earth interpretations of Genesis. This unique, substantial, historical, theological, and exegetical defense of the literal history of Genesis 1-11 is designed for seminary professors and studetns, pastors, and missionaries, as well as lay people and students who want to dig deeper into Scripture. Must reading especially for those inclined toward accepting millions of years.
