Christian apologist Ben Smith believes that the creation account in Genesis 1 can be read literally and historically as a real week of seven normal days without contradicting modern astronomy and geology regarding the age of the universe and Earth. Many Christians are divided over how to reconcile Genesis with modern science, and this book evaluates all of the major options, ultimately concluding that the Bible allows for an old universe and Earth in a way that is also scientifically accurate. A former Young Earth creationist, Smith now believes that the age of creation is not specified in the Bible, and therefore scientists are free to answer the question. He believes that Christians should not hide from the controversy over the age of the Earth, but should take a fresh look at the text and be impressed with its accuracy.
Benjamin D. Smith Jr. has been studying and teaching theology and apologetics for over thirty years since becoming a Christian as a student at Georgia Tech. He has a Bachelor of Arts in Christian Worldview and Apologetics from Luther Rice College & Seminary, and he is the Ratio Christi chapter director at the University of West Georgia and the Ratio Christi publishing project manager.
