Michael, I was also very impressed with Ramm's book when I first read it even though at the time I felt myself 'too conservative' to fully accept his positions. Subsequently I wonder at the lack of alternatives facing Christians especially as to how they view Genesis. For one thing, the category of 'true myth' has practically been wiped out of the modern consciousness.

On the one hand we certainly should not be allowing the popular understanding that science disproves the bible to hold sway. On the other hand our own thinking on how Genesis and science are both truthful has to be much more clearly worked out and expressed.

"On the other hand our own thinking on how Genesis and science are both truthful has to be much more clearly worked out and expressed."

Amen! The thing that has really helped me in gaining more understanding about several biblical issues is the role of stories in ancient cultures. It is such a different world from our scientific factual apporach to things. I think when begin to understand how stories communicate authoritative truth many difficulties disappear but we have to learn to read looking through different lenses.
