Descrição do produto

The present creation-evolution debate is often cast as a choice between two positions: naturalistic evolution over millions of years or miraculous creation six thousand years ago. When simplified, this choice is often presented as one between science and the Bible, a choice that leaves much ground between the two views yet to be

A Biblical Case for an Old Earth seeks to address the gap between theistic evolutionism and young-earth creationism by finally paying due attention to the biblical aspect of the debate. Both a scientist and a preacher, David Snoke presents a theological study of several themes in the evolution discussion, including the balance theme of Scripture and the day-age interpretation. Complete with an appendix that gives a literal translation of Genesis 1-11, this intriguing study will interest both scientists and lay Christians who want to dig into the faith-science intersection.


Young-earth creationism? Naturalistic evolution? Isn't there another choice?

Yes, there is.

Respected physicist and professor Dr. David Snoke argues that the Bible does tell us about the scientific history of our world, but it does not teach that the world was created recently. He offers a compelling biblical case that the young-earth position is theologically flawed.

Drawing out the deeper themes of Scripture often lost in modern discussion, Snoke shows how the biblical texts as well as modern scientific discoveries are better explained by a day-age model. He argues that the earth is millions of years old-and created miraculously by God.

Anyone interested in how science and faith relate and what the Bible says about the age of the earth will appreciate this readable, biblically grounded explanation of old-earth creationism.

"As both a respected scientist and elder of the Presbyterian Church of America, David Snoke brings great breadth and erudition to the question of whether an old earth is an orthodox interpretation of the teachings of the Bible. No matter what one's initial position, A Biblical Case for an Old Earth will certainly provoke Christians to think more deeply about this often divisive topic."--Michael J. Behe, author, Darwin's Black Box

"A marvelous book! Dr. Snoke gives us a powerful biblical warrant for an old earth, the best I've ever seen. You need to read this book, whether you're already convinced or not."--Robert C. Newman, professor, Biblical Theological Seminary; director, Interdisciplinary Biblical Research Institute

I think there may be wider options available than the one proposed. Some discussion on various Bible references seemed a bit like quibbling. Nevertheless there were some points I thought were new and worth consideration.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Old Earth/Young Earth Debate - A Scientific and Biblical Case for an Ancient Creation 11 de novembro de 2009
Por kone - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum Compra verificada
One controversial topic among Christian believers is that of creation theology, especially concerning the age of God's creation. Is the earth only about 6,000 years old as most "young-earthers" insist the Bible states (seven literal 24 hour days occuring 6,000 years ago according to the geneologies in Genesis)? Or, is the earth much older, perhaps billions of years old, with the universe even older?

Dr. David W. Snoke PhD, the author of this somewhat scholarly book, is a Physics professor at the University of Pittsburgh. He presents many scientific (data) proofs to show conclusively that the earth is ancient, and insists that the Bible supports the notion of an ancient earth. Snoke writes that "young-earthers" impose their particular young-earth creation theology upon the Genesis account (insisting on a literal 7-day, 24 hour creation period)- an effort that Snoke claims does not fit the text.

If you have interest in this subject, this book will hold your interest from start to finish. Caution - it is not a book to casually read in one's spare time! Rather, this is a book to study, to work through slowly, much like a textbook. The scientific proofs of an ancient earth are explained in detail, and it takes time to "digest" these proofs, to learn them and understand them. After Dr. Snoke presents the scientific case for an ancient earth, he then gives a three chapter treatise on the Biblical case for an ancient earth (citing Biblical texts that support the notion that the earth is indeed ancient). He wraps up the book with the obvious (and not so obvious) implications of his evidence. (I won't list the implications here, as these would be considered "spoilers").

I consider this book an important text in the on-going debate between young and old earther Christian believers. As a student of the sciences myself, I never accepted the notion of a "young" earth, a literal 24-hour, 7-day creation week. I don't beleive Genesis should be interpreted that way, as it does not make sense scientifically, and since the Creator created both the earth and science, the two must be in harmony. As an aside, I am most grateful for the writings of Dr. Hugh Ross, Christian believer, Physicist and Astronomer. Dr. Ross's many books present the case for a "Day-Age" interpretation of Genesis, which has allowed me to understand Genesis 1 and 2 for the first time (without compromising my scientific background). (Some Hugh Ross books I highly recommend are Genesis One: A Scientific Perspective, Why the Universe Is the Way It Is, and The Genesis Question: Scientific Advances and the Accuracy of Genesis.

Science and the Bible are not contradicatory (but sometimes our flawed interpretations of the scriptures are contradicatory). The God that created our world also created all the scientific principles of physics, biology, chemistry, and geology, that definitively prove we live in an ancient earth, and a much more ancient universe.

Dr. Snokes' book is clear and concise, explained so that the layperson and scientist can clearly understand his reasoning on the age of the earth and why the Bible supports an ancient earth. It is well worth the time to read, especially if you have been taught in religious training (like me) that the earth is only 6,000 years old. Many youg-earth groups dogmatically teach a young earth, and even go so far as to suggest blasphemy to those that do not accept their teaching. I liken them to the Catholic Church that insisted Galileo was wrong about the eath-sun-planetary model.

3.0 de 5 estrelas I'd recommend it even to those who strongly disagree with his perspective... 11 de julho de 2013
Por J D White - Publicada na Amazon.com

Though I'm not necessarily in agreement with the author (this is basically my introduction to the opposing sides of new/old earth creationism ;P :) . . . he definitely approaches the subject well and gives a convincing argument.

Only the first few chapters actually covered scientific data, however, since this was mostly approaching the theological side of the issue . . . so I'm looking forward to getting into the actual 'science' behind the theories that are being debated :D

I'd recommend it even to those who strongly disagree with his perspective...
