Coneixement comú




Much controversy surrounds the opening chapters of Genesis. They are front-loaded with all manner of vital topics—such as God's work of creating the world and mankind; what it means to be human; why our present experience is so different from what we find in Genesis 2; how we come to know God and to be sure of his love.

Collins employs a literary-theological method informed by contemporary discourse analysis in order to read passages as coherent wholes. He shows how later biblical and inter-testamental writers have used Genesis 1–4 and reflects on how these chapters shape a Christian worldview today.… (més)

Throughout history, most Christians have believed that Adam and Eve were actual persons, of whom we are all descendants. Some Christians today, however, readily dismiss the historical consensus, arguing that those same Christians also believed the earth was the center of the universe. Understandably, there are reasons to doubt the traditional view . . . and yet rarely are those doubts humbly subjected to serious scholarship.
C. John Collins invites both doubts and scholarship to the table. Applying well-informed, critical thinking to questions raised by theologians and scientists alike, Collins examines the historicity and relevance of a real Adam and Eve, ultimately answering the questions: Did Adam and Eve really exist? And why should we care?… (més)

Really would like to assign no stars to this disorganized mess. I understand what the author is attempting to do, however, his editor failed in the task of shaping and cutting where needed. There are much better books on the topic.

Collins is a theologian, not a scientist, so the book is heavy on theology and light on science – the science minded folks among us will mind, but for most Christians, this is the sort of book they need. I was impressed: Collins was even-handed, thoughtful, and serious, and he dealt with a variety of positions (including those of people who gleefully smear his own position) with considerable respect and care. Collins traces the theological argument throughout Scripture arguing for a historical Adam and Eve, and he does so with careful attention paid not only to the strong New Testament and philosophical arguments for their historicity and the authority of Scripture, but also with regard to ANE literary context and genre. In short, Collins' treatment was thorough and excellent. His final didactic chapter, examining which proposed options are allowed by the text, is and will remain an excellent resource and will remain so for the foreseeable future. Highly recommended.… (més)
