A Harmonised and Historical Reading
First as a defense of Scripture's integrity against liberal critical handling which claims to identify historical errors or failures of historical accuracy, inconsistency and mythological genre within Scripture - whatever the motivation for such handling, which is certainly not limited to an evolutionary creationism agenda. This is he book's principal purpose
Second, as a sound exposition of aspects of Genesis 1-2, exploring some of the eternal themes that God begins here.
Third, as an illustration of how to deal with "problem" passages". Rather than running shy of such passages,, I encourage you to embrace them in order to discover God's purpose by taking perceived problems in Scripture as signpost for matters of deeper significance.
