Item description for Unformed and Unfilled: A Critique of the Gap Theory by Weston Fields...
Overview Everyone's heard of it. Many believe it. Is there a "gap in time" between the first two verses in Genesis? Does this alleged gap really represent a vast amount of time? Weston Field's classic treatment of this subject is now being published by Master Books, and promoted by such important organizations as Answers in Genesis. In this book, Fields makes a detailed study of the gap theory, paying particular attention to the original Hebrew language of Genesis. His conclusion - that this theory is not a reasonable compromise with modern evolutionary theory, but a dangerous diversion from biblical truth - helps readers who struggle with the question of the time taken during the creation week. Was it really six days? Can Christians find a workable solution to the debate about creation and time? An important book. * A presentation of a variety of views espoused by Christians of all denominations * A professional, scholarly look that can be easily understood by laymen * A fascinating study of the original Hebrew text * A classic work still relevant today "A brilliant, scholarly refutation of the famed gap theory" - Ken Ham, President, Answers in Genesis

but at the final pages i found what i was after information on men of faith reflecting about The Bible on subjects that our Lord blessed us with gray matter to try to speculate with
Very Comprehensive discussion on a most important theological topic Jun 7, 2008
Argueably the most foundation damaging view in christian circle is the gap theory. It eats away at the self esteem of man. I decline to use revelation to describe this theory because it certainly wasn't a divine knowledge. This is all man's theory to explain that the earth's state isn't his fault but the fault of this or that or this person or that. Every christian should spend time studying about this theory and there is no better place to start than this book. Quite comprehensive, he talks not only about the theory but the subsequent other erroneous theories that have come out from this gap theory. Other books can be too technical especially examination of the Hebrew language concerning the words used in Gen 1:1-2. This book treats this in just a few chapters and spends time on other items. The author looks at the various scriptures quoted by gap theorists to justify their postulation, he exposes the sense knowledge, e.g "darkness upon the face of the deep", what is wrong with darkness? Especially in the context used here. Darkness doesn't mean something bad everytime, after all we have nights. Was night a result of the fall of man? Of course not, read the book and find out more. He also looks at items like the 24hr creation, the age of the earth etc. My conclusion with plenty of revelation from God is that this earth was created exclusively for man, we are not using any refurbished goods, we are the first time users of this earth. It has transformed me such that I can say with confidence, "I am a son of Man". How many people say that? I hear I am a "son of God", I don't hear I am a "son of Man". Yet Jesus said it a lot in describing himself. Read this book and pray for revelation and perhaps God will reveal what it means to be a "son of Man".

This is a very good book for pastors,ministers,or priests. It shows how the Hebrew and Greek can be translated to give the true meaning of what the men of God were inspired to write. As for me it was a little over my head. I got the point he was making in the first two chapters. In my writing education, I was taught to use different words with the same meaning so as not to bore or confuse the reader. Thus it does not surprise me that God would do the same thing, after all He created us.
