Reviews - What do our customers think?
So Sorry I am so busy  Jun 12, 2008
I love the books; have not had time to finish two of them, and don't have time to write a review. I'm sorry. I do appreciate reading reviews. It definitely helps me in buying. E.R.
Helps to reconcile the Bible with an old earth  May 31, 2007
This book is one of several that significantly help to make the point that the Bible does not preclude the possibility of an old earth and an old universe. Other books are also helpful in this regard, including C. John Collins' Genesis 1-4: A Linguistic, Literary, And Theological Commentary, Rodney Whitefield's Reading Genesis One, David Snoke's A Biblical Case for an Old Earth, Mark S. Whorton's Peril in Paradise: Theology, Science, and the Age of the Earth, and Hugh Ross's Creation and Time: A Biblical and Scientific Perspective on the Creation-Date Controversy.

I highly recommend all of them, including Godfrey's "God's Pattern for Creation," to anyone struggling with reconciling the Bible with the scientific evidence for an old earth or struggling with how to convince young earth creationists that young earth creationism is not the only possible way to interpret the Bible.

In addition to 80+ pages of text supporting compatibility of the Bible with an old earth through a careful examination of the words of the Bible, this book includes appendices on "Calvin on Creation," and "The Reformed Confessions on Creation." It is a worthwhile investment.
Fascinating  Jun 8, 2006
This book is a very accessible and fascinating look at the creation account in Genesis. Dr. Godfrey challenges conventional thought by asserting an analogical view of the creation account. The point of the narrative is to direct us to understand the covenant of creation, and that God created all things because He wanted to enter into covenantal relations with mankind. Genesis is neither a science book, an anthropology book, nor a geology book. It is a book about God as He has revealed Himself through the covenants, not the least of which is the covenant of creation. This is a fascinating book and very easy to read. High School students should be able to read it just fine and get a lot out of it.
