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

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.
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.

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.Read more ›
