Adam and Eve? Magic trees in the Garden? Was the world created in six days? Is evolution found in the Bible? Are science and the Bible at war with each other? What's it all about?

Recognizing this need motivated scientist George Diepstra and theologian Gregory Laughery to rethink common assumptions about the nature of Genesis 1-3. What kind of text is this? In a provocative and creative manner, Laughery and Diepstra take both the biblical and scientific informers seriously, arguing for the necessity of a dialogue between them and the worlds they represent. With this innovative, rather than reactionary approach, From Evolution to Eden is dedicated to exploring where this journey might lead us.

Review quote

"Just finished reading Greg Laughery & George Diepstra's "From Evolution to Eden" (purchased it from Amazon at the link above), and I must say that this has been so far, by all criteria, the best Christian attempt at "making sense of early Genesis," alluding to the first three chapters of B'reshit, the first book of the Torah." Prof. Nythamar de Oliveira

" I recommend this book to every Christian who takes the Bible seriously, particularly those with a conservative bent who feel they must interpret Genesis literally in order to be faithful to Biblical Authority. It would also be of great value to those who are or have been struggling with their Faith believing it is in conflict with recent discoveries in the Sciences. Likewise, it offers a needed challenge to those in the scientific community who have long discounted religion and the Bible as contributing nothing to Truth." Joyce Dawson

"This book is blessed with footnotes rather than cursed with endnotes. It also has an eight-page bibliography and a subject index. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to explore a hermeneutical strategy for approaching Genesis 1-3." Paul Bruggink
