    I should start by saying that I came to this book already affirming a theistic evolutionary view, despite some outstanding theological questions, because I find those questions to bepalatable andlikely to be resolved than the questions that are raised by denying the science I can t speak much to the persuasiveness of Venema s science arguments, as I did not need convincing of that part But though I didn t necessarily need that part of the book for myself though I did learn som I should start by saying that I came to this book already affirming a theistic evolutionary view, despite some outstanding theological questions, because I find those questions to bepalatable andlikely to be resolved than the questions that are raised by denying the science I can t speak much to the persuasiveness of Venema s science arguments, as I did not need convincing of that part But though I didn t necessarily need that part of the book for myself though I did learn some interesting details previously unknown to me , I am happy to have found a book that takes both the science and the theology seriously, giving equal time to each topic, for those who are not yet convinced My biggest interest was to hear McKnight s theological arguments reconciling Paul s comments in Romans 5 with...

    Great read especially for someone struggling with science and faith issues I will not say it has all of the answers but it is very helpful.I would highly recommend reading It is not a light read It delves into science and into theology It...

    This book is written by two Christians, one a trained biologist and the other a theologian The first half covers organic evolution and the second half covers historical Adam The two authors are extremely knowledgeable in their fields, even a little too knowledgeable I withheld one star because both au...

    The book is written in two halves I had hoped forconclusions from Venema, but he had a lot of good insights about the conclusions of genetic biology about what DNA can tell us about the relationships between species, the age of the modern human race, and the size of the emerging human population at that time 3 5 for a bit too much explanation that didn t seem relevant.McKnight s half of the book was excellent as he explored the different ways that Adam has been treated historically, in bo The book is written in two halves I had hoped forconclusions from Venema, but he had a lot of good insights about the conclusions of genetic bio...

    In the first half of this book, Trinity Western University biology professor Dennis Venema makes a convincing case that human beings began from a population of around 10,000 rather than from a single couple Then New Testament scholar Scot McKnight makes a case for this being consistent with references to Adam in the New Testament Together, they propose accepting the reality of genetic evidence supporting a theory of evolution along with an understanding of Adam and Eve that isin tune wi In the first half of this book, Trinity Western University biology professor Dennis Venema makes a convincing case that human beings began from a population of around 10,000 rather than from a single couple Then New Testament scholar Scot McKnight makes a case for this being consistent with references to ...

    Dennis Venema and Scot McKnight join together to provide an introductory examination of a topic that has become, and will only become , critical as we scientifically progress as a people The mapping of the human genome was a quantum leap for genetic science, and the repercussions reverberated far beyond laboratories and the hard sciences With such a radical reorientation of how humans interpret the book of nature, it is only appropriate to consider the impact on how we interpret the book o Dennis Venema and Scot McKnight join together to provide an introductory examination of a topic that has become, and will only become , critical as we scientifically progress as a people The mapping of the human genome was a quantum leap for genetic science, and the repercussions reverberated far beyond laboratories and the hard sciences With such a radical reorientation of how humans interpret the book of nature, it is only appropriate to consider the impact on how we interpret the book of God s special revelation The need of a work like Adam and the Genome is undeniable, and McKnight and Venema are up to the task Venema spends the first half of the book examin...

    Half on genetic science, half on Scriptural Adam Dennis Venema and Scot McKnight Pretty heavy reading on both halves, but quite educational.

    Dealing heavily with the set in stone dichotomy between Science and Scripture orspecifically evolution and Scripture , Scientist Dennis R Venema and New Testament scholar Scot McKnight have created a book which very well may challenge previous assumptions Christians have concerning science, the Apostle Paul, and the Edenic story While both agree with the theory of evolution, they are not afraid to critique the arrogance common in those who align with the New Atheism Richard Dawkin Dealing heavily with the set in stone dichotomy between Science and Scripture orspecifically evolution and Scripture , Scientist Dennis R Venema and New Testament scholar Scot McKnight have created a book which very well may challenge previous assumptions Christians have concerning science, the Apostle Paul, and the Edenic story While both agree with the theory of evolution, they are not afraid to critique the arrogance common in those who align with the New Atheism Richard Dawkin s guild as well as those Christians who feel themselves superior to those who hold a creationist view.Can Belief in Evolution and B...

    The premise behind the book is one that I heartily agree with God and Science are not incompatible rather as has been believed by the many, many Christian scientists through the centuries God has revealed himself two ways through His word the Bible and through His creation thus science The book was written by a scientist, biologist Dennis Venema, and a theologian, Scot McKnight The first half of the book was the scientific part and while is started well, Venema ended up writing in the The premise behind the book is one that I heartily agree with God and Science are not incompatible rathe...

    An ambitious book by two heavyweight Christian scholars, but one that is sorely needed.In reality, this actually reads like two separate books one on genetic science and one on the theology of Genesis 1 3 and Romans 5 However, combining them into one volume was a brilliant decision, even if it makes for dense reading I entered this book very open to the idea of theistically guided evolution, and the first 4 chapters convinced me The chapter on the problems with intelligent design was pa An ambitious book by two heavyweight Christian scholars, but one that is sore...
