Genesis for Normal People

A few weeks back I posted a review of Pete Enns' new book The Evolution of Adam (Baker Academic, 2012). In the book Enns helps readers to think about Genesis and the creation story in a world informed by evolution. In the first half of the book Enns places Genesis in its wider Ancient Near East context and makes some suggestions of how moderns should read it.

Today I have two links that continue on this theme.

First is a 12 minute video in which a number of scholars provide perspectives on reading Genesis. The video is produced by the Biologos Foundation.

Second is a new EBook by Peter Enns and Jared Byas titled Genesis for Normal People: A Guide to the Most Controversial, Misunderstood, and Abused Book of the Bible. The book is on special today for just $1.99, it's normally $4.99. It looks like an interesting read.
