Overview

Genesis is a book of origins—the origin of the universe, the origin of life and the origin of man. It places man in his cosmic setting, shows his particular uniquness, explains his wonder and his flaw, and begins to trace the flow of human history through space and time.

Many today, however, view this book as a collection of myths, useful for understanding the Hebrew mind, perhaps, but certainly not a record of what really happened. Dr. Francis A. Schaeffer challenges that view and shows how the first eleven chapters of Genesis stand as a solid, space-time basis for answering the tough questions posed by modern man.

What is the solution to the dilemmas man finds himself faced with? Everywhere one looks, one can observe man at odds with God, with himself, with other men, and with nature. Francis Schaeffer, in his book Genesis in Space and Time , contends that the answer is to be found in the origins of man, and of the universe itself. “If a man attributes the wrong cause to the dilemma and divisions of men,” Schaeffer wrote, “he will never come up with the right answer no matter how good a will he has.” Genesis in Space and Time seeks to shed light on the cause of man’s dilemma through an analysis of the first eleven chapter of the book of Genesis. Tracing the story through these narratives, Schaeffer’s book recounts the creation of man and the universe (chapters 1-3), the fall (chapters 4 and 5), and the results, (divisions between God and man, between man and himself, between man and man, and between man and nature), and the first steps in God’s plan of redemption (chapters 6-8). Genesis in Space and Time is an excellent book, both for its content and its style. It is very easy to read, yet conveys profound truths in its 163 pages. Whether one is a layman or scholar, Schaeffer’s presentation of the origins of the universe, of man, and of man’s great dilemma of separation is clear and concise and, often, profound. I highly recommend this book for anyone considering the origins and nature of man.
