Product Description

Review

The author makes the early chapters of Genesis come wonderfully alive, in a way that gives full weight to current science. This accessible book is an essential guide for all those who wish to understand how Genesis speaks to us today. --Dr Denis Alexander, Babraham Institute, Cambridge

Too many interpretations of Genesis are not firmly based on the text of Scripture. Melvin Tinker brings us firmly back to the Bible and its implications for the 21st century. --Professor R.J.Berry, Emeritus Professor of Genetics at University College, London

A winsome, warm, thoughtful, and pastoral treatment. --Carl R Trueman, Academic Dean, Westminster Theological Seminary, Pennsylvania

About the Author

Vicar of St John Newland since 1994, Melvin read Theology at Oxford University and trained for ordination at Wycliffe Hall. He has previously been curate at Wetherby Parish Church, Chaplain to Keele University and vicar of All Hallows, Cheadle. He is author of several books and a popular speaker.

If you truly want to understand Genesis and what it says, than this is the book for you.
Mr Tinker describes, in a beautiful way, the meaning of Genesis and how it always points to Jesus.
Read it and leave all this creation debate aside, this book tells you want God wants you to know.

This book gives a good overview of the theological significance of the first 12 chapters of Genesis. The author explains the key ideas introduced here and how they underpin all of Scripture. In the preface (essay) on 'Creation, Evolution and Genesis' the author argues that these early chapters of Genesis should perhaps be given a literary category of 'figurative narrative'. The main part of the book is based on the text of Genesis. I've not read any Melvin Tinker before, but I found his book very easy to read. I think this book would provide useful material to those who need to preach or teach on these early chapters of Genesis, or to the interested general reader who would like a better understanding of why these chapters of the Bible are important.

This book is yet another addition to a whole series of books based on a theologically unsound premise.

The whole of Tinker's book hinges on his hermeneutic which he discusses in the Preface. In particular see p. 27 where he argues that the Bible does not contain texts which deny rejection of an evolutionary process unequivocally. On this Tinker is fundamentally wrong.

Tinker is well known for his ardent anti-creation stand and in this book he never head on addresses seriously and in careful and logical detail the strong arguments for a young earth creation position. These are based on drawing from other other scriptures (and in particular NT scriptures) which shows that there can be no alternative to the hermeneutic that takes Genesis 1-11 in a literal sense. If one is seeking to justify the approach that Tinker is suggesting, then there are weighty arguments that theologically have to be faced first. These in summary are as follows :

1) There was no death before the Fall (Romans 5:17 "..by one man's sin death reigned by one.." and 1 Cor 15:22 ".. as in Adam all die, so all in Christ shall be made alive"). Rom 6:23 'the wages of sin is death' shows that death follows as a consequence of sin. This is the clear NT teaching and implies immediately that the Biblical and correct hermeneutic for understanding Genesis is that physical (as well as spiritual) death followed the Fall of man. So Scripture itself leaves no doubt as to how to understand Genesis.
2) Creation is by the agency of God's spoken word (Heb 11:3) and by the person of Christ Himself. The Trinity is involved (Gen.
