Interpretation of the Creation Narratives

A Summary of Approaches to the Interpretation of the Creation Narratives

in the Early Chapters of Genesis


John Spence

Professor Emeritus, University of Strathclyde and Chair, Search for Truth Charitable Trust

Abstract: There are a number of different views of the creation stories held by individuals, churches and denominations, some of which are held strongly which can cause disagreement if not division. Nevertheless, when the different views are considered together in a spirit of humility it becomes obvious there is considerable overlap as well as space for different opinions to be held together in Christian fellowship. It is anticipated that this summary may be useful to individuals and churches who are seeking harmony and reconciliation rather than entrenched positions. It should help to show that certain issues need not be as divisive as imagined. Unity in big picture truths rather than dogmatism in regard to more incidental aspects will assist the healing process if such be required.

    Hello! Drawing from my experience as an artist and designer, I can confirm that achieving success in today’s highly competitive environment can be quite challenging without access to dependable services. The demand for fresh ideas is constant. Personally, I’ve been a devoted user of Depositphotos for an extended period because it consistently provides all the resources I need, regardless of a project’s specific demands. I firmly believe that my recommendation will significantly enhance your creative endeavors. They offer a wide range of artwork covering various themes, including nature, buckets, botanicals, and even paint splash. I am confident that you will discover the essential materials for your project there! I enjoy exploring their website, especially for jewelry-related content. I’m certain you’ll find the necessary assets for your project. Best of luck!
