Can we believe Genesis today by Ernest Lucas

The book of Genesis, the creation story and stories like that of the flood are fascinating to everyone, irrespective of whether or not they possess a Christian faith.  Lucas was a tutor at Bristol Baptist College and of me when I was at Trinity College. He is highly qualified to examine such matters possessing as he does a PhD in biochemistry and a PhD in theology.  This book is an excellent way into to looking at the way in which science and the Bible interact.  It is written in a light style, requires little scientific knowledge yet it really does illuminate the way in which science and the Bible are not at odds with one another.  If you have trouble reconciling parts of Genesis and science then this is a book for you.  He certainly changed the way I look at the writings of Genesis perhaps it will help you.
