Can the "puzzle" of God's creation design and His willingness to forge relationship with man be solved? Yes, it can, with this insightful synthesis of Scripture and science to reveal anew God's original plan in Genesis.
In Puzzles & Promises, Hinson utilizes his unique style of teaching to bring to life in print once familiar Bible stories in Genesis. With personal insight and imagination, he gives us a fresh image of God creating and intervening personally with His crowning achievement through three distinct covenants offered at key epochal points in history. The author attempts, as in the days of Middle Ages Scholasticism, to reconcile science with faith choosing not to run from DNA and fossil evidence but instead to face it head-on. It is possible to fill gaps in the puzzle and successfully glean from the gracious promises made by God to redeem and create a relationship with man. His conclusions, uncomfortable perhaps to some, make fascinating reading and will conceivably surprise some skeptics and non-believers.
