Untangling Science and Purpose: The Creation Account of Genesis through Ancient Eyes
About the Author
John Walton’s work in Genesis 1–3 offers a fresh perspective by seeking to understand the message of Scripture within its ancient context. A close reading of the Genesis creation account and an evaluation of its ancient Near Eastern setting raise the question of whether the Bible provides modern scientific information related to our understanding of the natural world, or whether it offers a theological framework for thinking about the cosmos. On the subject, Dr. Walton has authored The Lost World of Genesis One: Ancient Cosmology and the Origins Debate (InterVarsity, 2009).
