BOOK DESCRIPTION: Truth seekers of all stripes have long grappled with the perplexing narratives found in the book of Genesis. Though written over 3,000 years ago, there are still many questions that elicit deep thought and debate: Is Genesis a historically reliable account? Is the Bible an inspired book? How should one interpret it? Was Noah’s flood an actual event, and, if so, was it global or local? Did early humans live hundreds of years, as reported in Genesis? Since scholars differ widely in their interpretations, it’s not surprising that the lay public struggles with the themes.
The Genesis Labyrinth hopes to acquaint readers with the multifaceted concepts in the first eleven chapters of the Bible. Incorporating ideas from a wide array of scholars and perspectives, the author presents the information in a balanced and straightforward manner while representing all sides in the theological debate. With myriad viewpoints and possible solutions to life’s most profound questions, The Genesis Labyrinth encourages Christian believers to engage in deep critical thinking to come to conclusions about unanswered biblical questions.
