Overview

Was Adam the first man? Was man created by divine act in less than one day almost 6,000 years ago, as the Bible suggests?

Or did man appear 200,000 years ago as the culmination of numerous human-like species that existed during a span of millions of years, as the scientific record shows?

Both cannot be right. Or can they?

Imagine there exist manuscripts, written centuries ago, that could help us objectively decipher Genesis and thereby extract the timeline and key events recounting the appearance and early history of our species, Homo sapiens, precisely as identified by the latest scientific evidence derived from the fossil record and genetic studies.

The Broken Gift carefully examines the relationship between scientific theory and Biblical teachings. The book approaches the human origins debate from a fresh perspective informed by both scientific and scriptural research. The book demonstrates alignment between key events and their dates relating to the appearance and early history of our species as described in Genesis chapters 1 through 11 (Adam, Adam’s descendants, the Flood, and the fall of Babel) with those derived from scientific observation.

    Reviewed by Ann Boling for Readers' Favorite

    “The premise of 'The Broken Gift' is: The rigorous approach of science and a careful and equally rigorous analysis of Genesis produce the same events and timelines for the appearance and early history of humanity.” Author, Daniel Friedmann begins his book by defining Science and Creation. Science is the methodical method of collecting data about the universe and shaping it into concepts and rules that can be verified. Genesis is the first of the five books of law called the Torah. “The Torah is the blueprint of the universe’s and humankind’s existence from a faith-based perspective, drawn from a tradition of oral and written principles.” The author’s theory is that science and scripture should go hand in hand with the same outcomes. The largest discrepancy between science and scripture is the timeline. While Genesis states that creation took 6 days, while science declares it took billions of years. There is also the question of whether life evolved. Among the things covered in this book, the reader will find discussion on: why humanity was required, the creation and fall of Adam, the flood, and the spread of human language. 
     
    “The Broken Gift” by Daniel Friedmann gives believers and scientists much to ponder. I can only hint at the wealth of information in this book as Daniel Friedmann has thoroughly researched his topic. He presents his thesis in logical terms. There is a glossary in the back of this book along with a list of references. The author has successfully presented information that should bring science and religion into balance. I highly recommend this book.
