God, Adam, and You God, Adam, and You

Biblical Creation Defended and Applied

by Phillips, Richard D, editor

Contributions from: Joel R. Beeke, Liam Goligher, Kevin DeYoung, Carl R. Trueman, Derek W. H. Thomas, Richard D. Phillips. What difference does Adam make? The answer, to many Christians today, is ďnot much.Ē Adam, we are told, is a mythological figure who can safely be abandoned without compromising the authority and infallibility of Scripture. After all, is holding on to a historical Adam more important than downplaying Genesis 1Ė3 enough to mediate the gospel to our secular culture? The Philadelphia Conference on Reformed Theology joins with historic Christianity in saying that yes, it is. Adam is not only necessary to our Christian faith and witness, but he makes a world of difference to our understanding of God, mankind, the Bibleóand even the gospel itself. The following contributors examine what the truth of Adam means about the truth of Scripture as a whole, how he shows us what it means to bear Godís image, and what an understanding of Adam teaches us about Christ. Derek W. H. Thomas: The Bibleís First Word; Joel R. Beeke: The Case for Adam; Kevin DeYoung: Two Views of the Human Person; Liam Goligher: Adam, Lord of the Garden; Richard D. Phillips: The Bible and Evolution; Richard D. Phillips: Godís Design for Gender, Marriage, and Sex; Derek W. H. Thomas: Differing Views on the Days of Creation; Joel R. Beeke: Christ, the Second Adam; Richard D. Phillips: From Godís Garden to Godís City; Carl R. Trueman: Original Sin and Modern Theology;
