Genomic science indicates that humans descend not from an individual pair but from a large population What does this mean for the basic claim of many Christians that humans descend from Adam and Eve Leading evangelical geneticist Dennis Venema and popular New Testament scholar Scot McKnight combine their expertise to offer informed guidance and answers to questions pertaining to evolution genomic science and the historical Adam Some of the questions they explore include Is there credible evidence for evolution Do we descend from a population or are we the offspring of Adam and Eve Does taking the Bible seriously mean rejecting recent genomic science How do Genesis s creation stories reflect their ancient Near Eastern context and how did Judaism understand the Adam and Eve of Genesis Doesn t Paul s use of Adam in the New Testament prove that Adam was a historical individual The authors address up to date genomics data with expert commentary from both genetic and theological perspectives showing that genome research and Scripture are not irreconcilable Foreword by Tremper Longman III and afterword by Daniel Harrell
