Genesis One

The Jesus Creed has started a multi-part series on Genesis 1 based on the new book by Wheaton professor John Walton entitled The Lost World of Genesis One: Ancient Cosmology and the Origins Debate. Walton asks and attempts to answer the question: "What did the text mean in context?"

He sees evangelical creation science as misguided and rightly suggests that this text reflects an ancient cosmology and should not be taken as a scientific explanation for the origin of the universe. Walton is an evangelical and his criticism of much evangelical thinking in regard to Genesis is interesting to observe.
