Creation and Change book. Kelly structures his exegesis by beginning in the beginning and, over each of the successive days, discussing the significance of the various viewpoints involved in each act of creation. In each chapter, the theological discussion is followed by a section of technical and biographical notes, in which he examines those relevant points where the truth claims of Holy Scripture directly impinge upon the actually existing world of space, time and matter.

Besides being a qualified theologian, Douglas Kelly also has a good grasp of philosophy and a reasonable one of science, which all taken together makes this an important work - though more care in some areas, including proof-reading, may have prevented some significant annoyances. these were often like separate chapters in themselves.

In this book Professor Douglas Kelly persuasively argues for a literal interpretation of the seven day account of creation found in Genesis chapters 1 and 2. He assesses both the biblical details and the scientific data to show that there is a convincing case for this understanding and how it is scientifically viable.

When it comes analyzing and interpreting the Biblical text, Kelly does a very good job of defending the position that the Bible teaches that the creation of the heavens and earth are a recent event, not something which took place billions of years ago. Addressing Christians who try to synthesize the Bible with billions of years/theistic evolution and Framework theology, Kelly says: "...our entire volume constitutes a general response to the position that objective science necessarily rejects serious interaction with Biblical origins. While differing with the liberal concerning the historical and scientific accuracy of Genesis, one must respect them for their more candid exegesis of the ancient text".

"Creation and Change" does a decent job addressing scientific issues, but Kelly readily admits that he is a theologian, not a scientist. He is well versed in much of the research done by creation scientists, but would have done well to cite someone other than Walter Brown; other creation scientists have work that hold up better. Works by scientists such as Dr. Jonathan Safarti, Dr. Andrew Snelling, and Dr. Jim Hartnett would have set forth a stronger scientific case. He is familiar with the work of Dr. Russell Humpheys "Starlight and Time". Had he done it, I would've give his work five stars instead of 4. (My actual rating is 4.5 stars.)

Having said that, Kelly's analysis is spot-on. His critique of the Framework Hypothesis is especially valuable, because the implications of Framework are leading to new errors in some Reformed Seminaries.

I must point out the fact that so many people enjoy discrediting others simply due to the fact that some authors like a title behind their name. "This guy isn't a PHD or whatever and thus lacks the grasp and understanding to make any kind of logical assumptions based on this lack of title and/or credentials. But it appears that Kelly nows his stuff in the world of science to hold his own. In fact his back ground does include serious science study's and I must also note that Mr. Kelly did a TON of scientific research to his own gain of knowledge and understanding in so that he clearly has a firm grasp and understanding of the issues of which he speaks which in my opinion qualifies him to speak on the topic at hand.

There are some things in this book I didn't like. Simply because Mr. Kelly was correct in his logic and I have been entirely wrong. Personal change is never easy but in the end always rewarding.

I must say that this book is a real helpful source. What did I get out of it? Well I will no longer try to make the bible fit science out of some dumb humanistic need to to create harmony between the two.

1. God is soveriegn over all his creation.

2. he made it all in 6 days and rested on the 7th.

3. Days means solar days and there is no biblical reason to define a day longer than what we experience now. A day sure isn't 1000 years.

4. Genesis definates what a day is.

5. Time is not a master of God. God is the master of time and he is not subject to time. Time is subject to him. He demonstrates this all over the bible.

6. Science is not the master of God. etc etc etc. Hence small minded feable and imperfect observations only serve to confirm our fallen state when he reads science as proof of everything anti-theistic and puts faith in his own observations and deny's their fallacy when they are shown wrong. They cry "I'm a highly educated scientist.. I'm right God is wrong!" He uses the foolish things of the world to confound the wise.

It was a tad bit of a difficult read for me as I am not a college educated man and I am far from stupid and the bulk of the material is highly intelligent and well resourced and researched. This is good though because there is just that much more for me to learn.

Add on comment:
If I may interject that Genesis does define the length of a day. Though I once leaned towards an older earth scenerio I have also learned that GOD IS THE MAKER AND MASTER IF TIME. Time is not Gods master. We see plenty of evidence that he can do what he pleases with time through out the Bible and that he himself is not subject to it. Thus if he wants to make Adam at zero age look like he's 20 years old and has a head filled with basic knowledge of how to take care of himself then thats how God does it. If the earth looks old to someone then we should also look at Mt St. Hellens the day after the big boom. That looked like it had been there forever. Though I must admit that this is a weak example to fit in such a short post here. The author does a wonderful job of extrapolating on this subject matter in a a few chapters.

It's when we start interpreting (according to our own grasp and understanding) what he has revealed that makes it corrupt ". Might I add what we see and interpret in the natural can be corrected and defined with his word too. A humble man will accept correction and a self attained wise man will not. Who then really is the wise man anyway? There is just too much empircal evidence in his creation as well as in his word to suggest anything other than 6 days. After all........ isn't The lord God a God of many wonders? ( I don't like the term miracle)

I used to be an old earth creationist simply trying to meld science and the bible together. However Scientist seem to rely to much on their titles and self serving and so called wisdom have inserted (willingly or unwillingly) so many falsehoods into their claims to support their own thesis's in order to gain some kind of notoriety of self serving vanity that I find many of them difficult to believe anymore. They just won't stick to the facts anymore and make ludicrous assumptions.

What is a man even if he spends his entire life being educated and fills his head full of other scientics thesis and precepts to think that he is so full of scientific wisdom that he can usurp Gods infinate knowledge and wisdom? They are but men full of their own vanity.

This book is a must read.

This is the book that persuaded RC Sproul to abandon his "old earth" view and embrace the literal 6 day creation as clearly articulated in the very first chapter of the Bible. Kelly not only argues persuasively for a literal view of Genesis, it is also a vital apologetic defense of the Gospel itself. Embracing any old earth view is almost always based upon the supposed age of fossils and the concession that there was death before Adam or Adam was not a literal historical figure. This, in turn, refutes the fall as a literal historical event which, in turn, does severe violence to the Gospel for it is here that God's scarlet thread of redemption begins. The thread that culminates in Jesus Christ, the second Adam, Who destroys the curse of sin and death. Creation and Change is a vital piece of outstanding exegesis on the Book of Beginnings.

This book is mind expanding. It makes you think of how the earth was created and breaks down the biblical support for creation. Highly recommended.

This is the book that changed R.C. Sproul to a young earth creationist. Very concise and well written. Excellent overview and well documented content.
