Reading Genesis & Modern Science: A Study Guide


What evidence do scientists have that the earth is 4.5 billion years old, and that the universe is 14 billion years old? Does the Bible really suggest that everything began only 6,000 years ago? How does one take both scientific evidence and the Bible seriously? 

This study is comprised of eight lessons, each with text, questions, and  extensive answers, given in a latter section.

My recommendation for becoming informed on these and other issues, even if from more of a theological perspective, is to read one or more of the books written by John Walton (a Wheaton prof) on various OT topics, including Gen 1 and Gen 2.


I agree with both you guys Frank and Doug. There is a lot of great information and explanations for the Old Testament stories at both places! I also have had many discussions on these subjects with my brother who affirms a lot of this subject matter! He has his Doctorate in Old Testament languages and interpretation. 

I was privileged lately to get a signed copy of Reading Genesis and Science from long time friend and fellow believer/church member Frank De Haan.  I read it with keen interest, and heartily endorse its use in any church and small group setting.                 Be sure to note the format which is easy enough to follow, but this is not a "book" as such, but a study guide.  Pass a mention of this booklet along to your church's education and young people leaders.
