Thinking Through Creation : Genesis 1 and 2 as Tools of Cultural Critique
Too often, all our contemporary culture sees in Genesis 1 and 2 are problems involving Darwin, dinosaurs, and the length of days, while the Trinity is dismissed as irrational or a later imposition on the Bible. But a loss of confidence in these doctrines would be a disaster for thinking Christians, since the foundational, biblical truths of the Trinity and creation are among the richest sources of insights and tools for robust and sensitive engagement with contemporary culture. With diagrams and clear explanations both of the Bible and our contemporary world, Christopher Watkin reclaims the Trinity and creation from their cultural despisers and shows how these foundational doctrines speak into, question, and reorient some of the most important debates in today's society.

"Watkin does much more than round up the usual proof texts: he rather calls our attention to biblical patterns that diagonally cut through taken-for-granted false dichotomies. . . . Take up and take heed." -- Kevin J. Vanhoozer "Research Professor of Systematic Theology, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School"
