Summary: Fourteen theological scholars address key topics related to the age of the earth, which is the crucial issue of debate in the church today regarding origins. Bringing to bear rigorous biblical, theological, and historical arguments in favor of a six-day creation, the global flood, and a young earth, they also provide much-needed critiques of a number of contemporary old-earth interpretations of the book of Genesis. This fresh defense of the literal history of Genesis 1-11 complements other studies which focus on the scientific evidence for youth-earth creationism. This book can serve as a versatile supplement to other works, but is also designed to be used as a stand-alone text for seminary and Bible college professors and students, pastors, missionaries, and others who want in-depth apologetic resources ... Coming to Grips With Genesis is written in honor of Dr. John Whitcomb, co-author of the monumental creationist book, The Genesis Flood (1961)--Back cover.
