Creation—it’s all in six days’ work. But did the creation days of Genesis last hours or epochs?
The length of time represented by the word day sparks a storm of controversy. Lightning strikes and thunder roars with questions at the core of this debate:
- Does belief in an old earth equate to belief in evolution?
- Was there any kind of death before the Fall?
- Does the Bible speak of a “big bang”?
- Is God’s plan a restored paradise or a whole new creation?
In A Matter of Days, respected author and astronomer Hugh Ross, Ph.D., addresses these questions and explores how the creation-day controversy developed. History, theology, science, and Scripture reveal creation’s big picture.

Hugh Ross’s spiritual depth and brilliance of mind is the rarest of blends. He addresses the topic of Creation, opening many thoughtful minds and hearts to the message of salvation, providing them new reasons to believe.
—Dr. Jack W. Hayford, founder and chancellor of The King’s College and Seminary
Three decades ago, when I was still an atheist, a work like this one could have satisfied my own objections to Genesis. This book should help many Christians to stop fighting about how God created and get back to our business of proclaiming that he did it.
—Craig S. Keener, Th.D., visiting professor of Bible, Eastern Seminary, and author of the IVP Bible Background Commentary and the volume on Matthew in the IVP New Testament Commentary Series
Hugh masterfully explains how it is entirely plausible that a day on earth might be one thing, a solar day another, and a day in the universe another entity altogether. I congratulate Hugh on his work. A Matter of Days deserves a careful reading.
—Pat Robertson, chairman and CEO of The Christian Broadcasting Network, Inc., and host of The 700 Club
