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.
