Today Daniel Friedmann is visiting and sharing his second release. His first book, The Genesis One Code got a 4 Star review!
Have your children ever asked you “How did I get here?”
In discussion with my nephews (12 to 20 years of age) I realized they were asking the same questions I had asked at their age and like me, not getting satisfactory answers. Furthermore, there were some prominent scientists trying to promote that they had all the answers, and on top of that, that there is no need for God. The combination of all this made me re-double my efforts. Concurrently I saw an approach to the problem developed 800 years ago, that looked like it had promise – which pointed me to a reconciliation of science and religion answers on our origins. This was exciting and fresh and I was encouraged to write two books “The Genesis One Code” and “The Broken Gift.”
The Genesis One Code, demonstrates an alignment between the dates of key events pertaining to the development of the universe and the appearance of life on earth as described in Chapters 1 and 2 of Genesis, with those derived from scientific theory and observation. This book, The Broken Gift, follows and extends the scope of The Genesis One Code to include the appearance and early history of humans.
The origins of our species is now a hotly debated topic now after scientific investigation has revealed dozens of human like species existing over millions of years until 200,000 years ago our species, homo sapiens appeared in Africa. Pictures of these fossils now appear in high school science books. How does this square with the Bible? My newly published book, The Broken Gift, tackles this issue head on.
The Broken Gift covers Genesis, the first book of the Bible, and the scientific timeline for human origins and why they should agree. What does it mean to be human from a biblical and scientific perspective; what Adam and Eve were really like vs. us, the Homo sapiens; and more.
So, how did we get here? Whether you agree or disagree. Either way, you will be fascinated!
The Broken Gift: How did we get here? Was Adam the first man? Was man created by divine act in less than one day almost 6,000 years ago, as the Bible suggests? Or did man appear 200,000 years ago as the culmination of numerous human-like species that existed during a span of millions of years, as the scientific record shows? Both cannot be right. Or can they? Imagine there exist manuscripts, written centuries ago, that could help us objectively decipher Genesis and thereby extract the timeline and key events recounting the appearance and early history of our species, Homo sapiens, precisely as identified by the latest scientific evidence derived from the fossil record and genetic studies. The Broken Gift carefully examines the relationship between scientific theory and Biblical teachings. The book approaches the human origins debate from a fresh perspective informed by both scientific and scriptural research. The author demonstrates alignment between key events and their dates relating to the appearance and early history of our species as described in Genesis chapters 1 through 11 (Adam, Adam’s descendants, the Flood, and the fall of Babel) with those derived from scientific observation. Could both be true? Is the evidence solid or is it sophistry? You’ll have to be the judge. Read The Broken Gift and join the conversation.
