We have set a date for our upcoming discussion of John Walton’s The Lost World of Genesis One: Ancient Cosmology and the Origins Debate. (If you’re not in the Portland area, you’ll have to join us in spirit.) We’ll be meeting at Pat’s house again on Tuesday evening, July 27, at 7:00pm. If you’re planning on attending, please email Billy and let him know.
If you’ve read the book, great. If not, here are some resources that should help you get up to speed for the discussion.
- You can read Walton’s own summary of the book in a very nice article at Bible and Interpretation.
- Here’s a short video clip of Walton talking about why it is important for us to read Genesis as an ancient text and how this will help us discern the “temple” imagery in Genesis 1-2.
- James McGrath and Jesus Creed both did multi-part posts on the book. Shorter reviews of the book include those by Nick Norreli, Kingdom Props, Diglotting, Art Boulet, and Vern Poythress.
- Here is Walton’s response to Vern Poythress’s review.
