Item Description...
A biblical approach that addresses the gap between theistic evolutionism and young earth creationism. Includes discussions on the balance theme of Scripture and the day-age interpretation.

Publishers Description
The present creation-evolution debate is often cast as a choice between two positions: naturalistic evolution over millions of years or miraculous creation six thousand years ago. When simplified, this choice is often presented as one between science and the Bible, a choice that leaves much ground between the two views yet to be
A Biblical Case for an Old Earth seeks to address the gap between theistic evolutionism and young-earth creationism by finally paying due attention to the biblical aspect of the debate. Both a scientist and a preacher, David Snoke presents a theological study of several themes in the evolution discussion, including the balance theme of Scripture and the day-age interpretation. Complete with an appendix that gives a literal translation of Genesis 1-11, this intriguing study will interest both scientists and lay Christians who want to dig into the faith-science intersection.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A scientific companion to Genesis  Mar 23, 2007

I started this book very interested in learning news things yet hidden to me in the bible, seen from a scientific perspective. After getting so entangled in all the observations and exegesis of the sacred texts, I thought to myself if I really cared if it was older or younger (how much older or younger?); I mean, if I cared enough to keep reading till the end. I admit I failed to keep my interest alive in this discussion. Whatever the age of the world is, if the Spirit of God didn't make it more clear for us to know, it's quite understandable nobody else would.

However, the book may be a great book, if you are interested enough in the subject. To me, it wasn't the most exciting book I ever read.
Good read, could have used a bit more muscle  Jan 28, 2007
Snoke is a capable scientist with a very capable grasp of scripture and theology. Actaully, I felt that the science was a bit lacking and he could have expanded his scientific defense of an old-earth. He seems to anticipate more criticism on his biblical hermeneutic than his science - maybe he's right in that. Still, I would have appreciated a deeper treatement of old-earth science.
Important book, but could have been better.  Nov 20, 2006
Most of the book was exceptionally well written, well edited, and mature, as you would expect for a new edition of an old book. Dr. Snoke's discussion of animal death before The Fall masterfully covers this controversial subject. His discussion of the Sabbath issue only missed one minor point, the law was given on Pentecost, the end of a week of weeks, but his comparison of Genesis 1 to the judgments of Revelation was a completely new insight. His chapter on concordance between science and Scripture should be required reading for Christians who call themselves scientists. His translation of Genesis 1-12 is especially helpful to those who want to carefully deal with Genesis but can not read Hebrew.

But three chapters struck me as if Dr. Snoke got some new ideas at the last moment and hurriedily inserted them into his book. Snoke's eschatology greatly adds to the confusion in these places. [...] It basically makes for a confused mess that was not well thought out in much of Chapters 1, 3 (predators before The Fall), and 8 (The Flood). These chapters are still very useful, but not as good as they should have been.

Hopefully the book will do well enough that Baker will do another printing and Snoke can improve those chapters to the quality of the rest of the book.
Sad, Sad  Nov 1, 2006
It is very sad that someone would use the words Biblical and Old earth in a title for a book, or anything for that matter. You can NOT believe the Bible and then turn around and believe that God lied in it about His Creation. Just not possible. Please stop trying to sell your filth to people that don't know better and actually might believe you instead of God. Shame on you Mr Snoke! :-(
Interesting reading  Oct 26, 2006
Ironically, as from the examination of this book, I tend to agree with Mr. Snoke and Old Earth theology on the beginning and I agree with John MacArthur and PreMill on the ending. I have to say I tend to be an Old Earth theologian when dealing with the first eleven to twelve chapters or so in the book of Genesis. While there are a lot of books out there on young earth theology, there are only a few really good books on Old Earth theology--and Mr. Snoke's book is one of them. The first two or so chapters are fairly boring. I hate to say. He examines arguments that I really already know a great deal about having studied OT theology in my Seminary studies. But after a bit, Snoke truly brings you into argument after argument as to why the world must be an Old Earth world. He does so pithily, intrinsically, and with a lot of wisdom toward what Scripture has to offer. He doesn't just fly off the scope of Scripture, he bridges science and Scripture together as they should be bridged. Some of his arguments deal with why there had to be animal (not human, mind you) death before and during the time of Adam and Eve in the Garden. And, building on that, why there was death to begin with for animals, but not humans. What I mean by that is this, humans received death out of punishment for Adam's sin. Animals died before and during and up to the time of the bitten apple because this death was to show as an object lesson to Adam and Eve. Not that Scripture says this out right, but Snokes does a fairly good job using meticulous exegesis on Scripture to bring us this message. Even if you do not agree with Old Earth theology, you should read this book because it will help you understand why those like myself are Old Earth Christians.
