The Genealogical Adam and Eve

What if the biblical creation account is true, with the origins of Adam and Eve taking place alongside evolution? Building on well-established but overlooked science, S. Joshua Swamidass explains how it's possible for Adam and Eve to be rightly identified as the ancestors of everyone, opening up new possibilities for understanding Adam and Eve consistent both with current scientific consensus and with traditional readings of Scripture.

The Generations of Heaven and Earth

In this book he argues that the long existence of other people before and alongside Adam was in all likelihood known to the Bible's original authors.

The Generations of Heaven and Earth

New science has surprised many by showing, contrary to received wisdom, that a real Adam and Eve could have lived amongst other humans in historical times and yet be the ancestors of every living person, as traditional Christianity has always taught. This theory was first published in book form in 2019, but Jon Garvey, familiar with it from its early days, believes it helps confirm the Christian account of reality by giving it a solid foundation in science and history. In this book he argues that the long existence of other people before and alongside Adam was in all likelihood known to the Bible's original authors. This conclusion helps build a compelling biblical "big story" of a new kind of created order initially frustrated by Adam's failure, but finally accomplished in Christ. This "new creation" theme complements that of the "old creation" covered in his first book, God's Good Earth. The two together contribute to a unified, and fully orthodox, understanding of the overall message of the Bible.

Adam and the Genome

That is, the literary Adam and Eve are the “front porch” to the genealogical Adam and Eve. From this literary presentation of Adam and Eve in Genesis on into early Judaism, the first man will be Adam and the first woman will be Eve.

Adam and the Genome

Genomic science indicates that humans descend not from an individual pair but from a large population. What does this mean for the basic claim of many Christians: that humans descend from Adam and Eve? Leading evangelical geneticist Dennis Venema and popular New Testament scholar Scot McKnight combine their expertise to offer informed guidance and answers to questions pertaining to evolution, genomic science, and the historical Adam. Some of the questions they explore include: - Is there credible evidence for evolution? - Do we descend from a population or are we the offspring of Adam and Eve? - Does taking the Bible seriously mean rejecting recent genomic science? - How do Genesis's creation stories reflect their ancient Near Eastern context, and how did Judaism understand the Adam and Eve of Genesis? - Doesn't Paul's use of Adam in the New Testament prove that Adam was a historical individual? The authors address up-to-date genomics data with expert commentary from both genetic and theological perspectives, showing that genome research and Scripture are not irreconcilable. Foreword by Tremper Longman III and afterword by Daniel Harrell.

A scientist explores the harmony between Christian faith and science Though some Christians and many skeptics see science and Christianity as locked in a never-ending battle, geologist Gregg Davidson contends that there is tremendous harmony between Scripture and modern science. Many apparent conflicts arise when the Bible is interpreted apart from its literary and historical contexts, but when these are taken into account, most alleged clashes resolve. Proceeding from a belief that Scripture is inspired and without error and that God's creation should inform how we interpret the Bible, Davidson shows that Scripture and science need not disagree on issues like the age of the earth, Adam and Eve, Noah's flood, the origin and development of life, and numerous related topics. Rather, Christians can rejoice at how God's glory is revealed in both the Bible and the natural world.

Of Popes and Unicorns

This is the story of John Draper, Andrew White, and the conflict thesis: a centuries-old misconception that religion and science are at odds with one another. Renowned scientist John William Draper (1811-1882) and celebrated historian-politician Andrew Dickson White (1832-1918) were certain that Enlightened Science and Dogmatic Christianity were mortal enemies--and they said as much to anyone who would listen. More than a century later, their grand and sweeping version of history dominates our landscape; Draper and White's "conflict thesis" is still found in countless textbooks, lecture series, movies, novels, and more. Yet, as it would later be discovered, they were mistaken. Their work has been torn to shreds by the experts, who have declared it totally at odds with reality. So how, if this is the case, does their wrongheaded narrative still live on? Who were these two men, and what, exactly, did they say? What is it about their God-versus-Science "conflict thesis" that convinced so many? And what--since both claimed to love Science and love Christ--were they actually trying to achieve in the first place? In this book, physicist David Hutchings and historian of science and religion James C. Ungureanu dissect the work of Draper and White. They take readers on a journey through time, diving into the formation and fallacy of the conflict thesis and its polarizing impact on society. The result is a tale of Flat Earths, of anesthetic, and of autopsies; of Creation and Evolution; of laser-eyed lizards and infinite worlds. It is a story of miracles and mathematicians; souls and Great Libraries; the Greeks, the scientific method, the Not-So-Dark-After-All Ages... and, of course, of popes and unicorns.

MEETING WITH JESUS THROUGH THE BIBLE

Jesus chastised the Scripture readers (religious leaders) in his day because they misread the Bible. “You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me, yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life” (John 5:39–40). How do we come to and meet with Jesus through our Bible reading? After his resurrection, Jesus met with his followers to open their minds to understand the Scriptures. He made clear that, “everything written about me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets, and the Psalms must be fulfilled” (Luke 24:44–45; emphasis mine). Understanding the plotline of Jesus’ life gives us the instrument whereby we can meet with Jesus through our Bible reading. It unifies and illuminates the beautiful diversity of Scripture writings. But not only will this book lead you to meet with Jesus through your Bible reading. More importantly, it will lead you to life in Christ. For the plotline of Jesus’ life is also the story of a Christian’s life from divine birth to new creation in this age and into the next!

Before Abraham Was

Rebelling against a century of Old Testament scholarship, Isaac M. Kikawada and Arthur Quinn persuasively argue that the first eleven chapters of Genesis are not a literary patchwork by different editors as widely supposed, but are the work of one author of extraordinary subtlety and skill. Comparing Genesis 1-11 with primeval histories from the ancient Near East, Kikawada and Quinn urge their readers to appreciate the ingenuity of Genesis's author: "When we think we find this author napping, we had better proceed very carefully. As with Homer or Shakespeare, when you think you have seen something wrong, there may well be something wrong with your own eyes. You are more likely to be wrong than either of them." Providing a solid case for the unity of Genesis's first eleven chapters, Kikawada and Quinn move on to show how these chapters provide a formal structure for other Old Testament histories. Destined to have lasting impact on biblical scholarship, Before Abraham Was will give scholars, clergy, and students a new appreciation of critical biblical studies and a new hypothesis for the formation of Genesis.

Understanding Scientific Theories of Origins

From five authors with over two decades of experience teaching origins together in the classroom, this is the first textbook to offer a full-fledged discussion of the scientific narrative of origins from the Big Bang through humankind, from biblical and theological perspectives. This work gives the reader a detailed picture of mainstream scientific theories of origins along with how they fit into the story of God's creative and redemptive action.

Excerpt from The Book of Adam and Eve, Also Called the Conflict of Adam and Eve With Satan: A Book of the Early Eastern Church, Translated From the Ethiopic, With Notes From the Kufale, Talmud, Midrashim, and Other Eastern Works As to the Book of Enoch, it was known only through a quotation from it by S. Jude v. 14, 15; and after him, from allusions to it by S. Hilarius, S. Clement of Alexandria, Origen, Geo. Syncellus, and others - until it was discovered in Abyssinia by Bruce, who brought several Ethiopic cepies of it from thence to Europe; one of which is now in the Bodleian Library. This was published and also translated by Archbishop Lawrence, in 1838. A later and more accurate edition of it was issued by Dr. Dillmann at Leipzig, in 1851 from several mss. Brought from Abyssinia since the days of Bruce; and it has been translated more than once Within the last few years. It is highly interesting, as a work of the probable date of its composition - not long before or after the coming of Christ. It is often quoted in the following pages.

The Book of Adam and Eve  Also Called the Conflict of Adam and Eve with Satan

The Book of Adam and Eve also called the Battle of Adam and Eve with Satan: A Book of the Early Eastern Church, translated from the Ethiopic, with notes from the Kufale, Talmud and other eastern works is an extra-canonical Christian work. The original work was translated from the Ge'ez language and this edition is the original translation performed into English by S. C. Malan. The story begins after Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden of Eden. It speaks movingly of their sense of less and sorrow at the transition and the difficulty of adjusting to the world outside. It diverges significantly from the orthodox biblical account in that it gives responsibility for the dispute between Cain and Abel to jealousy over their sister. In the narrative there are also changes to which figures invent weapons of war, begin particular civilisations and drive forward the progress of man. There is also an extensive speculative genealogical section with links from Adam all the way to the hypothesised genealogy of Jesus. S.C. Malan went through a series of curacies at various parishes and maintained a lifelong theological interest, however he was particularly noted for his linguistic prowess and the reader benefits from his encyclopaedic knowledge in the form of this impressive work. Rarely has anyone accused the old testament of being dull, but this text is more filled with resurrections, beating of breasts and raw emotion as part of the familiar religious narrative. The deceptions attempted by Satan with Adam and Eve over their lives outside the garden are made more personal and somehow more shocking.

Reading the books of the Law, the Pentateuch, in their original context is the crucial prerequisite for reading their citation and use in later interpretation, including the New Testament writings, argues Ben Witherington III. Here, he offers pastors, teachers, and students an accessible commentary on the Pentateuch, as well as a reasoned consideration of how these books were heard and read in early Christianity. By reading "forward and backward," Witherington advances the scholarly discussion of intertextuality and opens a new avenue for biblical theology.

The question of the "historical Adam" is a flashpoint for many evangelical readers and churches. Science-and-theology scholar Loren Haarsma--who has studied, written, and spoken on science and faith for decades--shows it is possible both to affirm what science tells us about human evolution and to maintain belief in the doctrine of original sin. Haarsma argues that there are several possible ways of harmonizing evolution and original sin, taking seriously both Scripture and science. He presents a range of approaches without privileging one over the others, examining the strengths and challenges of each.

This book offers a compelling examination of the problem of evil and the doctrine of sin. It engages with and advances extant discussions on the topic by drawing together philosophical arguments, theological reflections, scientific evidence, Biblical exegesis, and real-life stories. The chapters provide a comprehensive evaluation of objections by anti-theodicists and atheists, and bring recent philosophical work concerning the arguments for Christian theism and advances in science and religion to bear on the discussion. The author defends the Cosmic Conflict Theodicy against philosophical and theological objections, and uses it together with the Connection Building Theodicy, Adamic Fall Theodicy, arguments for divine hiddenness, and Afterlife Theodicy to address the vexing problem of horrendous evil.

"Racial Science helps unravel the complicated and intertwined history of race and science in America. Tracy Teslow explores how physical anthropologists in the twentieth century struggled to understand the complexity of human physical and cultural variation, and how their theories were disseminated to the public through art, museum exhibitions, books, and pamphlets. In their attempts to explain the history and nature of human peoples, anthropologists persistently saw both race and culture as critical components. This is at odds with a broadly accepted account that suggests racial science was fully rejected by scientists and the public following World War II. This book offers a corrective, showing that both race and culture informed how anthropologists and the public understood human variation from 1900 through the decades following the war. The book offers new insights into the work of Franz Boas, Ruth Benedict, and Ashley Montagu, as well as less well-known figures, including Harry Shapiro, Gene Weltfish, and Henry Field"--
