Details

You may not know it, but the "framework hypothesis" is probably impacting leaders in your church, or your denomination. The framework hypothesis has grown in acceptance as more readers of Scripture place "science" as the authority over God's Word. By reinterpreting Genesis, this view encourages Christians to disregard the plainly declared timeline of creation (the majestic march of days of Genesis 1) and instead consider it as merely figurative or poetic rather than historical and accurate. Kenneth Gentry carefully defines the framework hypothesis, while revealing its historical origins and purpose.


This important study:

  • Presents strong exegetical arguments for the six-day creation approach to Genesis
  • Illustrates the traditional interpretation of Genesis, a survey of exegetical arguments, and responses to alleged problems
  • Demonstrates the flaws in the framework argument.

This book presents in a simple but clear presentation the basic argument for a six-day literal interpretation of Genesis 1. It also explains and rebuts the framework hypothesis, which is a leading view in evangelical academic circles. This book is aimed at intelligent laymen, though with the academic reader in mind, with definitions of technical terms where they are necessary and Greek and Hebrew words transliterated.
