You can believe with great intellectual integrity what the Bible says about Adam and the origin and history of man.

THOUGH there are a growing number of books out on Adam, this one is unique with its multi-author combination of biblical, historical, theological, scientific, archaeological, and ethical arguments in support of believing in a literal Adam and the Fall. A gro

A long and difficult, but excellent book on the case for a historical Adam. It begins with Scripture, moves through some various theological and philosophical arguments, and then moves on to science. The exegetical part was interesting, though I find any exegetical argument against a historical Adam similar to the Cleveland Browns. They keep trying but always come up short.

Shelves: apologetics
This book is jam packed! For anyone looking for an apologetic to the historical account of Scripture and the existence of Adam, this is it. Experts in many different fields show the biblical account can be trusted. The book covers exegesis of Scripture, genetic studies, biology, and history. In true apologetic fashion, it also shows the irrationality of the evolutionary perspective and where it ultimately leads.

This book explores a hot-button topic that should be a lot hotter than it is in some circles. The question is: Was Adam an actual historical person? Was he indeed the first human, as Genesis indicates?

This is not a peripheral issue and much theology, perhaps most of theology, hinges upon the answer. The book documents—with names and clear-as-a-bell quotes—the fact that when you turn loose of a historical Adam, some scholars will begin to turn loose of substitutionary atonement. Why? No Ada
