This week I had the opportunity to present the main ideas of John Walton’s The Lost World of Genesis One: ancient cosmology and the origins debate to my Old Testament Theology classmates. I had a wonderful time talking about Genesis 1 and evolution issues and thought I’d share some of the slides with you. I will also include my notes. Then, those of you who want to read the book will have a ‘head start’ so to speak. I cannot emphasize enough how helpful this book is when it comes to reading the Bible faithfully and particularly to interpreting Genesis 1 for all its worth!
Here is my summary of the book.
Here is a pdf of all my notes from the presentation containing notes and insights from The Lost World of Genesis One, notes, Kurt Willems.
If you use this material (except the quotes, which belong to Walton) please point folks to the source
