Peter Enns, a senior fellow of the Biologos Foundation who blogs on the Foundation’s website, has written an important book entitled The Evolution of Adam: What the Bible Does and Doesn’t Say About Human Origins. The most compelling reviews I have read so far are written by fellow evangelicals who are not out to cast aspersions. Their purpose: the classical one of faith seeking understanding. The reviews I have in mind are those by James K. A. Smith, C. John Collins, Michael Heiser, and Peter Leithart (here and here). Like Enns, each of these authors seeks to stand at the intersection of everything we know (or think we know) about human origins, from (1) the book of Scripture and (2) the book of nature.
My agreements and disagreements with Peter Enns, Bruce Waltke, John Walton, and the reviewers just noted run deep in the case of things like the genres of Genesis 1 and 2-3, the historicity of Adam, and the nature of myth. Within the evangelical world, this is an intramural debate of great significance. A sampling of my take on these topics can be found here.
