The Lost World of Genesis One by John H. Walton

The Lost World of Genesis One is most definitely a scholarly book. Which makes sense seeing as it was published by IVP.

Author John Walton gives 18 propositions concerning the origins of the world according to Genesis 1. And these propositions are heavy on the "classroom" side.

As you read this book, you will feel your brain getting larger.

Walton proposes that the Creation Account in Genesis 1 does not speak on how God made everything. Walton calls this material. He says Genesis 1 explains how God created the function of everything.

Walton follows the examples of other ancient origin writings and explains that the ancient Israelites were of the same mind when it came to explaining how things came about.

This brings a new light on everything relating to Creation, science, evolution and even The Sabbath.

If you're ready to spend a few weeks chewing on this deep issue, find this book - plop down in a comfy chair with your sweats and prepare to open your mind!
