Reviews - What do customers think about Yea, Hath God Said?: The Framework Hypothesis/Six-Day Creation Debate?
Helpful study Jul 18, 2004
An important debate in the modern world is that between evolutionism and creationism. Evolutionism explains the reality, ethics, and knowledge by a gigantic explosion out of nothing 13.5 billion years ago. Creationism explains these important matters by the sovereign action of the rational, all powerful Creator.
This book demolishes a compromised Christian position known as the framework hypothesis. The author explains the position and then takes it apart piece by piece. He also provides helpful exegetical evidence for the historic six day creation view.
If the framework hypothesis seems valid to you, check out this book. You will find that it is full of holes.
Important critique of the Framework Hypothesis Apr 23, 2004
This is a very able analysis of the Framework Hypothesis, and an excellent defense of a literal, six day creation viewpoint. Butler and Gentry provide a very academic but accessible study of the popular Framework Hypothesis.
The Framework Hypothesis attempts to show from Scripture that Moses was not interested in chronology when he penned Genesis 1. Rather he was simply showing how God was the Creator. Moses (they say) expressed himself in a six day framework to simply organize his material, not to GOVERN it.
The Framework Hypothesis is thoroughly blown out of the water by the authors. You really need this book, if you are studying the doctrine of Creation from a biblical perspective.
