Read this book by 16 experts and increase your confidence in the truth of Genesis 1–11 and the gospel! You can believe what the Bible says about Adam and man's origin and with intellectual integrity reject the myth of human evolution.


Did Adam exist in history or is he a myth?

Though there are a growing number of books out on Adam, in this unique book 16 experts present biblical, historical, theological, paleontological, genetics, archaeological, and ethical arguments in defense of the literal truth about Adam and the Fall. In the process you will see the lie that man evolved from some ape-like creature over millions of years. An increasing number of professing evangelical leaders and scholars are doubting or denying a literal Adam and a literal Fall (or at least some of the details in Genesis about Adam), which thereby undermines the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Last Adam, who came to undo the damaging consequences of Adam’s sin and restore us to a right relationship with our Creator. Know that you can be confident in the truth of Genesis and in the gospel!

Contributing authors are Dr. William Barrick, Dr. David Croteau, Dr. Michael Naylor, Dr. Eugene Merrill, Dr. Tom Nettles, Dr. David Menton, Marvin Lubenow, Dr. Stuart Burgess, David Casas, Dr. Nathaniel Jeanson, Dr. Jeffrey Tomkins, Steve Ham, Dr. Jerry Bergman, Don Landis, and Tim Chaffey, as well as Dr. Mortenson.

Reading this book will help you:

  • enhance your understanding pertaining to the biblical evidence for taking Genesis as literal history
  • discover the scientific evidence from genetics, fossils, and human anatomy for the Bible’s teaching about Adam
  • understand the moral, spiritual, and gospel reasons why belief in a literal Adam and Fall are essential for Christian orthodoxy
