Jonathan Sarfati 2004. Master Books
Bijbelse en wetenschappelijke weerlegging van het “Progressive Creationism” (Miljarden jaren), gepopulariseerd door het werk van de astronoom Hugh Ross.
This is a very scholarly book from an author who not only understands the theological and scientific issues, but also knows the original Hebrew. The book is focused mainly at the scriptural and scientific biases of Hugh Ross and other “progressive creationists.” It also includes brief sections on other compromises, such as the framework hypothesis and the gap theory. Since the day-age theory is part of “progressive creationism,” that concept is automatically included in the critique of the latter. Chapters include a thorough analysis of the authority of Scripture, the order of creation, the days of creation, and the big bang theory. In the end, one wonders how Hugh Ross can intellectually maintain his position on science and scripture in the face of such refutations. Ideas of a local flood, widespread death and suffering before Adam’s sin, man-like ‘hominids’ before Adam’s creation and billions of years in Genesis ch 1 are each discussed at length and answers given from a Biblical standpoint.
