In this work, William Lane Craig parses through the biblical and scientific evidence on the historicity of Adam and Eve. He examines what it might mean for Genesis 1-11 to be "mytho-history."
Evolutionary science teaches that humans arose as a population, sharing common ancestors with other animals. The book of Genesis seems to say that all humans descended from Adam and Eve, a couple specially created by God. These two teachings seem contradictory, but is that necessarily so? In the Genalogical Adam and Eve, Swamidass draws upon some well-established but overlooked scientific insights to advance a new proposal on this old conversation.
Were humans mortal before the fall?
This book examines the way evangelicals handle science-theology conflicts and read Scripture in light thereof. It claims the “battle” between science and theology has been oversimplified and in some arenas misreported.
When we think of Augustine, we tend to think of his emphasis on divine grace, or his high doctrine of the church, or his penetrating insights into the Trinity. But in many ways, the doctrine of creation was at the core of who Augustine was, both as a theologian and as a Christian.
Prevailing genomic science holds that humans descend from a large population. Is this science to be believed and why? And biblically and theologically, what does this mean for the fate of Adam and Eve? In this Biologos sponsored book, evangelical geneticist Dennis Venema and popular New Testament scholar Scot McKnight combine their expertise to proffer an account of “Adam and the genome.”
