This does not appears to be common knowledge in the Christian world for reasons that are beyond me. I don't know what they teach in church now-a-days, but this is surely something that isn't. For me, the author did not tell me anything I didn't believe before but he did add some interesting ideas that I haven't thought of before and he put it all into a nice little ebook. I also believe that none of this is essential for salvation, which is probably why it isn't taught more, but it is valueable when talking to the scientific minds that think they know all. I sought this stuff for myself years ago because I was challenged back then. I knew the answer but was unable to put forth my argument clearly. Books such as this help for those who would like to have that same help.
One of the largest helps for me back then was reading the Young's Literal Translation (YLT) version of the Bible which clearly points out that the earth existed before the creation narrative found in Genesis:
1In the beginning of God's preparing the heavens and the earth --
2the earth hath existed waste and void, and darkness [is] on the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God fluttering on the face of the waters.......
This is a separate .99 kindle download that I recommend to anyone wanting a better english explanation of the original Bible. Just search YLT here at amazon and it will come up.
The YLT is not as readable as newer translations (verbs and nouns reversed like in many languages), but you'll find it very literal and with some patience you can really learn a lot. Short of learning a new language, it's as good as it gets IMO. I'd love to see the author add some of that into this ebook, but even as it is "The Genesis Gap" is a good resource for those who have newer translations of the Bibles that are so often in use today.
So here's the thing: I liked this book but thought it was a little short on details. Actually it's a little short period but, perhaps I read too fast.
He recommends another book by another author for more details, but that book is not available on Kindle...
4 stars purely for helping honest people trying to understand or for those who wish to be ready when challenged. Just remember, this kind of stuff is fun to learn, but it is not essential for salvation.
