    Book Review

Reviewed by Lesley Jones for Readers' Favorite

With the ever-increasing scientific research into our evolution and planet, the book of Genesis has simply become a collection of fables and myths. Throughout Could It Be True? by Jeffery Elliott, the first eleven stories are examined for their legitimacy using the same scientific measures that seem to disprove their truthfulness. How did Noah fit two of every species into the Ark? How could God have created Adam and Eve when the study of evolution has apparently proven otherwise? If God loves us, why does he allow such horrific events to occur? How could God have created the world in just six days? These and many other questions are answered with substantial evidence and detailed explanations. Discover why Genesis is, in fact, the cornerstone to the entire New Testament and without its presence, the entire credibility of Jesus becomes unstable.

The entire content of Could It Be True? What If the First Eleven Chapters Of Genesis Were True is quite thought-provoking and spiritually comforting. All the tough questions that most religious skeptics ask are tackled thoroughly and meticulously. The author's research is from an entirely unbiased standpoint and he uses scientific research to prove the validity of his argument. This book is extremely well-written and vital in today's society as the Bible faces a future of becoming insignificant. I was intrigued by many of the findings, especially with the section on Noah's Ark and the mathematical calculations that are presented. There are many chapters that I found so reassuring such as the rainbow representing our covenant with God and the creation of civilization from Adam and Eve. Jeffery Elliot also tackles the subject of evolution brilliantly. This superb book deserves its place in every Sunday school library and iconoclast's bookshelf so the teachings of Christianity are given the legitimacy and importance in society they deserve. The author has done an amazing job of tackling the book of Genesis with a fresh perspective and needs to be read with a totally open mind.
