John Walton's Excellent Book on Genesis 1

Linda and I are in Sioux Falls speaking and leading worship at a prayer and worship conference. We were supposed to arrive at 4:30 yesterday but, due to weather delays in Minneapolis and Sioux Falls, didn't gete here until 9:30.

So, we sat in airports and read. I finished John Walton's The Lost World of Genesis One: Ancient Cosmology and the Origins Debate. What a phenomenal book. I am deeply impacted by it. I'll be thinking about this for a very long time. Walton's proposal is that a "cosmic temple inauguration" best interprets Genesis 1.

Thank you John for writing this for us all.
