Adam and the Genome: Reading Scripture After Genetic Science Paperback - 2017

by Scot McKnight; Dennis R. Venema; Foreword by Tremper Longman III


From the rear cover

"Marks a watershed moment in the history of evangelical Christianity"

"Adam and the Genome is both hugely needed and splendidly written. Anyone who has wrestled with the notion that science is an obstacle to faith will benefit from its clarity and informed insight. I hope it's widely read inside the church--and out."
--John Ortberg, senior pastor of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church and best-selling author

"Few topics generate greater passion among evangelical Christians today than the question of the literal accuracy of the biblical creation story. With the advances in science, we have two accounts of the origin of living beings--one scientific, the other scriptural--and many believe that they are mutually exclusive. This book carefully considers whether that claim is true. The result is the most lucid and thorough discussion of the topic I have ever read. This book will mark a watershed moment in the history of evangelical Christianity."
--Darrel Falk, Point Loma Nazarene University

"Venema and McKnight address in a learned yet accessible way issues about which many of us have little understanding. We are indebted to them for giving us information and insights that enable us to think about human origins in ways that are both scientifically informed and grounded in a carefully nuanced interaction with the biblical text and early Jewish traditions."
--John H. Walton, Wheaton College

"This is a unique and valuable book: an expert geneticist and a leading New Testament scholar come together to address questions of Adam and Eve. Not all readers will agree with their conclusions, but the book is essential reading for all who seek an understanding of human origins that respects both Scripture and God's creation."
--Deborah Haarsma, president of BioLogos

"Anyone who doubts that Christian faith and evolutionary science can have a peaceful and fruitful relationship needs to read this remarkable book, a shining example of a complementary approach to science and religion in which both enhance, enrich, and complete each other. I highly recommend this book."
--Denis O. Lamoureux, St. Joseph's College, University of Alberta
