Reviews - What do customers think about Let There Be Life: A Scientific and Poetic Retelling of the Genesis Creation Story?
A Scientific Parable Dec 11, 2001
Even Fundamentalist Christians who read the Bible literally don't have trouble accepting Jesus's parables as parables‹as stories illustrating bigger ideas. That is because they are flagged as parables. The author of Let There Be Life asks readers to look at the "first seven days" of creation as a parable too. The way I see it, this book sees the Bible's creation account not as something outdated or wrong. He's looking at itthrough a different window, a modern window. It seems to make sense.
