Two Newer Books by John H. Walton and Other Related Items

John Walton is undermining the idea that Genesis 1-11 is straightforward history, and I welcome this even though he's a confessional Christian. His latest book is hot off the press, The Lost World of Adam and Eve: Genesis 2-3 and the Human Origins Debate.This one comes after the book he co-authored in 2013 with D. Brant Sandy that gained all kinds of acclaim, The Lost World of Scripture: Ancient Literary Culture and Biblical Authority.

Looks like there is a full-fledged debate concerning Adam and Eve that probably started with Peter Enns book, The Evolution of Adam, What the Bible Does and Doesn't Say about Human Origins.To see what all the fuss is about you might just want to read this one: Four Views on the Historical Adam.
