How are we to interpret yom, the Hebrew word for day? Does one have to be a young-earth creationist to be saved?
As the findings of secular scientists are increasingly touted as proof of a very old earth, more and more Christians, including theologians and pastors, are questioning Genesis 1. Various ideas have been put forth to explain how the six days of creation in Genesis can be re-interpreted to allow for long ages. This Pocket Guide to Six Days examines the biblical text, the views of the other biblical authors (and Jesus Himself), and the implications of one’s position. Ultimately, we must allow God’s Word to be our authority in every area.
