Dr. John Walton on Genesis and Science

“Are we reading the book of Genesis as if God has sort of subtly placed scientific information there for us to read 2000, 3000, 4000 years later as modern people?” asks Dr. John Walton. “Or are we supposed to read it as an ancient book? I’m inclined to think the later; that God was talking to them at the level of what they understood. And so we have to think the way they thought.”
In this segment from his course on Genesis, Dr. Walton goes on to explain how ancient people viewed God and the scientific world and how those views contrast with modern views today.
