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 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 the 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?
