In this book, Professor Douglas Kelly persuasively argues for a literal interpretation of the six–day account of creation found in Genesis chapters 1 and 2. He assesses both the biblical details and the scientific data to show that there is a convincing and scientifically viable case for this understanding. This new edition, written twenty years after the original, contains important revisions and additional chapters, bringing this insightful and relevant volume up–to–date with developments in this field.
It is an excellent work. I believe it will be an important contribution to the field.
—John Currid, Chancellor’s Professor of Old Testament, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, Mississippi
Kelly ably engages with several scientific debating points ... He makes the complex clear and sophisticated simple. Yet Kelly’s most admirable quality is in handling the text of Scripture, presenting a reasonable and winsome case for creation in six, ordinary, consecutive days, culminating in the worship of God on the Sabbath Day. Highly recommended for keen lay readers, theological students, pastors and professors.
—Jonathan Gibson, Associate Professor of Old Testament, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
This book is very accessible for the lay reader as well as being a very thoroughly argued and persuasive text for the student beginning theological studies in Genesis and wanting to know what the key Biblical arguments are for a young earth creation position. I cannot recommend this book more highly.
