Adam: The First and the LastBy: Simon Turpin
Was there ever a real historical first man called Adam? Because of the theory of evolution, an increasing number of evangelical theologians are denying this, seeing Adam as stereotypical, a Neolithic farmer, the head of a tribe or an archetype of humanity. Some think he did not even exist. Yet denying the historicity of Adam and his Fall in sin has huge theological implications. If there was no Adam, the whole biblical message of creation, Fall and redemption falls apart. This book defends Adamâs historicity and shows why he is so vital in Scripture. It also shows why, if you attack the âfirst Adamâ, you ultimately attack the life, teaching and person of the âLast Adamâ, our Lord Jesus Christ.
