We wanted to pass along from our partners at Seminary Now a preview of John Walton’s course on The Lost World of Genesis One. Also, for a limited time, Seminary Now is offering up to a 50 percent discount on their courses! Consider signing up for this course or another as something to do over semester break!
In his Seminary Now course based on the book The Lost World of Genesis One (InterVarsity Press), Bible scholar John Walton argues that Genesis was never intended to answer modern scientific questions about origins. Dr. Walton presents a literary and theological understanding of Genesis 1 within the context of the ancient Near Eastern world and unpacks its implications for modern science. Walton’s thoughtful analysis unpacks seldom appreciated aspects of the biblical text and sets Bible-believing scientists free to investigate the question of origins.
