Book Summary of Seven Days That Divide The World by John C. Lennox


God created the earth in seven days. Some people believe these seven days were literal 24-hour days. Others believe these days were figurative days that could have been thousands or even billions of years. Yet others believe the creation days simply lay a framework for the manner in which God made the earth.

The disciplines of geology and anthropology argue for an old earth. If so much evidence on earth and in space points to an old earth, shouldn’t this impact the way we understand the Bible? Perhaps. Just as the earth is no longer considered to be fixed in the solar system, maybe it’s time to consider that the earth was created in such a way as to allow for billions of years to elapse from “In the beginning” until now.

The common views of creation may each have elements that are correct. In fact, the earth may very well have been created in literal 24-hour days while still being billions of years old. Science and Scripture may indeed have more in common than meets the eye.
