Editorial Reviews

Review

It's wonderful to have an easy-to-read yet well-researched book that demonstrates that a sound reading of Genesis chapter 1 demands a literal, six-day creation week. If you've ever asked yourself whether the first six creation days were real days, or whether it even matters, this book by pastor and educator Douglas Hamp is for you. --Ken Ham, Founder and President, Answers in Genesis and the Creation Museum

I recommend this work without reservation, and pray it has a long and fruitful ministry. It makes a real contribution to a pastor s library, and adds power to any Bible teacher s or student's message. The evangelical church badly needs it. --Dr. John Morris, President Institute for Creation Research

A powerful examination of the biblical, linguistic, historical and archaeological evidence affirming that the creation days of Genesis were nothing but real and literal days. If you think that God worked through evolution, read this book and be challenged. If you believe that God created in a literal six days, read this book and be strengthened. --Joseph Farah, Chief Executive Officer WorldNetDaily.com Inc.

The First Six Days is a great book!

The author, Doug Hamp, uses his in-depth knowledge of the Hebrew language to reinforce the accuracy of the Biblical account of Creation. There is no need to question what the Bible says. God said what He meant and meant what He said! There is no need for extra long days!

I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the Eveloution/Creation depate.

Format: Paperback
I am so glad that I came upon this book as it has not only educated me in the issues of creation and been an enjoyable reading, but it has really taken me deeper into the meaning of scripture in general and a greater understanding of what the Hebrew texts are really saying. I believe this book will richly bless anyone who loves the Word of God.

***I first read this book when the chairman of a substantial mission organization loaned it to me on a missionary trip to Vanuatu. I read it and couldn’t put it down until I was done. Doug Hamp gives a very reasonable and concise argument for God’s creative work from bringing the universe into existence until the creation of man (Adam and Eve), all within six literal, 24 hour days. His reasoning is documented by consideration of not only the genre of Genesis and other relevant passages, but also the comparison of the key words and terms used as God reveals His creative activity to us.
***After I read the loaner copy I bought my own copy and made numerous notes in the margins of my Bible derived from the things I learned. Having a Th.D. doesn’t mean you quit learning, it means that you can't wait to learn something else. Doug, thanks for this book!
***By the way, for those of us who buy a book and just chew on the cover or put it on the shelf, there are also PICTURES that support Hamp’s arguments. A very informative study, indeed.
Anthony B. Badger, Th.D.
