Science and the Book of Genesis

Among Christians, there are several views of how God created the world and life (most commonly, Young Earth Creation, Old Earth Creation, and Theistic Evolution). Not surprisingly, there are also several interpretations of the Book of Genesis.

In the following video, a group of Christian scholars (including Alister McGrath, John Polkinghorne, and N. T. Wright) argue that Genesis should be interpreted as a response to various creation myths common when the book was written.
