Can the Biblical account of creation be reconciled with current scientific beliefs?

For over a century, the Holy Bible’s story of creation has come under considerable scrutiny and derision by the scientific community. The length of creation days, the Biblical order of creation, and man’s origin have all been the subjects of heated debates — debates that cast further doubts on Biblical accuracy.

But is such derision warranted?

The Theory of Creation boldly answers that very question. Rather than denounce other theories or repudiate accepted scientific beliefs, this is a comprehensive and objective analysis of the first story of the Bible (Genesis 1:1 - 2:4). Each verse is carefully examined for its scientific meaning, the original Hebrew text is often referenced, popular theories are explored, and the purpose and implications of God’s actions are addressed. Finally, the Biblical account of creation is compared to the scientific record.

In this era of moral relativism, when Biblical values are condemned and the sanctity of the Holy Bible is often ridiculed, validation of the creation story would be a source of inspiration for believers everywhere. In The Theory of Creation, Jim Schicatano answers the enduring questions of science and resolves the Biblical Creation debate.
