Biblically and scientifically informed answers to pressing questions about the creation-evolution debateThis accessible volume evenly addresses the issues of modern science and the scriptural texts. The conservative evangelical authors are well-informed on contemporary scientific views of the universe and also carefully exegete the biblical texts that pertain to creation. They irenically consider the various angles of the debate and make constructive suggestions to reconcile science and the Bible.Those who are curious about the origins of life and the universe will want to read this book.

Sadly this book was not what I thought it would be, I was expecting an exclusive defense of a literal 24 hour day week of creation; but that is my own fault, if I had looked at the back cover more closely I would have seen that the book is not claiming to defend only one view of creation. There are four views presented, two are defended, those being the literal-24 hour day view and the Day-Age theory. In the very first chapter/question the suggestion is made that 'young-earth creationists' come "perilously" close to 'blind faith', but as I understand it, old earth creationists believe(as do YECs) that God ultimately created out of nothing, so why is taking God at His Word in the case of Creation out of nothing less 'blind faith' than believing that God created out of nothing in six literal days? Why is one more plausible than the other or less hard to believe? Aren't both ultimately above our reason? J. I. Packer is quoted in the book, "To say that he(God) created 'out of nothing' is to confess the mystery, not explain it." Only, in the case of the six day creation we are given an explanation as to how much time God chose to use to create…six days! So we actually have more information about the timing of Creation than we do about Creation out of nothing. So, I ask which view is, to use their term(which I don't even like), more of a 'blind faith'?

As you probably know by now, the universal flood is also defended and critiqued(though the global flood seems to be presented as the more biblical view) . I don't get the local flood view…wouldn't Noah and the animals just move to an area that wasn't going to be flooded instead of building an ark? They'd have plenty of time to do that…120 years! Or maybe a year doesn't mean a year…maybe it means an hour(I'm being sarcastic here)?

Overall, despite the authors being anti-Darwinian, and pro God created out of nothing, the book is just too inconclusive in dealing with the specifics presented in the Bible about the Creation. It just doesn't strike me as being a very edifying book for Christians.

Many thanks to Kregel Academic for sending me a free copy of this book to review!
