“BIBLICAL CREATION TRUTH” differs from the traditional and recent controversial theories of creationism. Contrary to the prevailing confusing theories of creation, the “heavens and earth” of Genesis 1:1 were perfect (Deuteronomy 32:4) and beautiful (Ecclesiastes 3:11). Genesis 1:1, in just one short blessed sentence, covers within its grasp the ‘totality of a perfect creation’. This fact is corroborated by Proverbs 8:22-31 narrating the primeval creation.
In no way, Proverbs 8:27-31 are ‘parallel’ with Genesis1:3-31 but actually complement Genesis 1:1 with additional details. Next, Proverbs 8:27- 31 does not mention chaos on the primeval earth thereby proving that the chaos of Genesis 1:2 was of later occurrence. Moreover, Proverbs 8:26c -31 prove that the original earth was teemed with life, including pre-adamic ‘sons of men’ in whom Wisdom delighted. This could not be the case after Adam’s fall.
Undoubtedly, a faulty interpretation of Genesis 1:1-31 and Exodus 20:11 lies behind the ‘battle for a true view of the beginning’. If these Scriptures, along with Proverbs 8:22-31, were objectively interpreted, taking into account Genesis 2:4a relating to beginnings, it would be clear that there were two beginnings of God’s creative works; one, in the eternity past (2 Peter 3:5) and the other, in the realm of time (2 Peter 3:7), leaving no room for any debate relating to the origins or the age of the universe.
It’s time we admit our failure to consider all the Scriptures relating to creation and interpret the biblical creation accounts appropriately! And next, with faith, come to grips with the actual revealed Biblical Creation Truth, for ‘His Name’s sake’; even as we look forward to the creation of new heavens and earth in the eternity future (2 Peter 3:13)!

''BIBLICAL CREATION THEOLOGY' is a book worth reading by Christians of all denominations. In its Introduction itself, the Author questions the appropriateness of the traditional concept of a 'creation of the universe in six days' some six to ten thousand years ago. In addition to addressing the fallacy of evolutionary concepts, and making a case for Biblical Gap Theology replacing the controversial Gap Theology, the Author describes three phases or epochs of creation based on the biblical creation accounts. Special emphasis is laid upon God's works of the six days described in Genesis 1:3-31 as being restorative in nature, depicting object-lessons having evangelical significance. The book needs to be read objectively for its message to be appreciated.
