The 40 uestions are about the doctrine of creation Genesis 1 2 the days of creation the age of the earth the Fall and the flood and evolution and intelligent design For each of them the authors present the case for and against each position followed by a conclusion Regarding the days of creation they devote a chapter each to the pros and cons of the Gap Theory the Day Age Theory the Framework Theory the Temple Inauguration Theory John Sailhamer’s Historical Creation Theory and the Twenty Four Hour Theory They then conclude by proposing a mediating position suggesting that the word “day” not be understood in its normal way that the six days of creation are not the same as human days an approach that others have called the Analogical Day TheoryIn their discussion of the age of the earth they pretty much refute all of the Young Earth Creationist lines of evidence and have good brief discussions of the numerous scientific evidences that the earth is oldTheir chapter on the geological evidence of the extent of Noah’s flood is a particularly good read The two sides are represented by Davis Young and Ralph Stearley’s book “The Bible Rocks and Time” local flood and Andrew Snelling’s “ “Earth’s Catastrophic Past” global flood They suggest that reading these two books side by side “is a surreal experience that can give a person cognitive whiplash” p 295In their discussion of Darwinism they pretty much fail to distinguish between the scientific Darwinism Darwinism as a belief system and biological evolution but their discussion of five current objections to Darwinism is very well doneDespite its occasional shortcomings I thought that the book was a surprisingly well balanced discussion of the issues considering that both authors are professors at Southeastern Baptist Theological SeminaryRegardless of whether one agrees with the authors’ viewpoints old earth and local flood likely historical Adam and Fall necessary Darwinian evolution is an incomplete explanation this book is worth reading for the wide scope of issues and views summarized and referenced

The full version of this significantly abridged review may be found on the Pious Eye site reviewer’s blogIn 40 uestions about Creation and Evolution hereafter 40s a fairly comprehensive survey of debated uestions related to creation and evolution particularly as those uestions are addressed by evangelicals authors Keathley and Rooker hereafter KR survey and assess extant opinions in a manner that attempts successfully in some chapters than others to be fair rather than polemical KR’s efforts at fairness notwithstanding reading the whole 40s does give one a clear impression of what views KR preferIf the impression one gets is correct KR’s judgment is that at present the most natural reading of Scripture is still biblical creationism BC This is the terminology I and others advocate because it places proper emphasis on what motivates BC humble childlike submission Matthew 183 etc to the plain or natural sense of Scripture even when considering historical and scientific uestions KR in agreement with dominant usage call this young earth creationism In this review I will use the terminology I advocate The only biblical difficulty they agree exists for this reading ie the only one not easily resolved is the great deal of activity that seems to have taken place on the sixth day of the creation week Most alternative readings of the Genesis creation account show themselves in the chapters “uestions” that discuss them to be fraught with significant biblical difficulties than BC’s too much stuff on day six issue Though KR commend the Bible centered of these alternatives Scripture itself prevents them from claiming that any non BC position fits Scripture so naturally and well as BC Notably however a metaphor for literal but ineffable pre Fall reality theory is not criticized but only presented as a “mediating” view open to persons who are persuaded that the Genesis creation days must given biblical wording and context be understood as normal length days 164 What exactly does a metaphor communicate if the literal reality it is alleged to describe is wholly beyond verbal description Also notably KR like such past opponents of BC as Gleason Archer do sometimes call the BC reading “cursory” or such I believe Archer said “superficial” even though their own chapters studying the various approaches show that BC has strong biblical justification on close not just “cursory” reading Since this is not a “Genesis debate” book and since chapters are not specifically assigned to one author or the other this inconsistency of tone is troubling Readers are informed early on 23 that each author “leans to” a different position but nowhere is it suggested that either author disagrees with what they have chosen jointly to assert in their 40s collaborationWhile KR generally “cursory reading” inconsistency aside seem willing to grant the Scripture alone case to BC they also believe that scientific support for BC is scarce to nonexistent they think that BC is and one gets the impression should embrace being a fideistic position that is simply untestable because it relies on miracles like the global Flood and an initially mature creation Old Earth Creationism OEC on the other hand has they believe very strong scientific support even if various systems offered to go with OEC don’t seem true on biblical grounds alone Evolutionary Creationism EC while it can claim the support of most of the scientific data that KR believe supports OEC has considerably weaker biblical justification than non evolutionary OEC In fact KR seem
