IS A TRUTHSEEKER REALLY REQUIRED TO CHOOSE BETWEEN RELIGION AND SCIENCE OR IS THE GENESIS CREATION ABOUT SOMETHING ELSE ALTOGETHER?
In this ground-breaking work, biblical scholar Steven Hawk shines new light on the opening chapters of the Bible, revealing how centuries-old misunderstandings have continued to shape popular misinterpretation as well as greatly contributing to unnecessary conflicts between the Bible and science.
The bookends of the Bible (Genesis 1 and Revelation) are to be read similarly as prophetic, including symbolism, but also as one would read the law and the prophets. That's right, Genesis chapters 1 and 2 are not giving us a high school level science lesson as most of the church teaches. Not even if you contend it is only to let us know God is the creator, because the real meaning of Genesis fully does that.
This book throws light upon the real Genesis Creation and Christian use of the ongoing concept. The successive covenants, from Adam to David, are seen to express the divine purpose for humanity from the Genesis creation to the city of God. The development of the biblical theology of the covenants has far-reaching implications for enlarging our understanding of God's revelation in the Bible.
Though reconciliation to the scientific community is not the aim of the book, it is important to announce that the answers found in the first two chapters of Genesis, presents a credible, scripturally supported, and much-needed explanation that opens the door to the biblical and scientific worldviews.

Does the Bible teach Everlasting Torment or Hell for the unbeliever? A real conundrum for biblical scholarship because of the missing link of WHO Lazarus is, in the Rich man and Lazarus. Also because of the misidentification of the soul, gehenna, hades and tartarus, that can only be fully realized from a proper preterist perspective. Some say the soul just means person, life or being, hence continued confusion. This and the true biblical meaning/usage of olam and aionios and its derivatives translated forever.
