It is the assertion of Old-Earth Creationism that God created the Earth and then made it into an inhabitable environment over the course of a ""week"" of epoch-long creation ""days."" It is the assertion of modern science that the Earth is 4.6 billion years old and has reached such an age by passing through a number of geologic periods that are differentiated by stratigraphic, paleontological, and other empirical markers. Therefore, it seems very logical that if one holds to the veracity of these two basic assertions, then the long ""creation days"" of Genesis and the geologic ages of modern science can and should be effectively correlated with one another in some cohesive and systematic manner. Here we offer our origins correlation model, The Genesis Column, which does just that. ""Like John Wesley himself, Joe Stallings is a practical, pastoral theologian with a gift for communication. The Genesis Column is readable, theologically sound, and biblical in scope. I recommend it without reservation "" --Barry Page Drum, Chaplain, North Carolina Wesleyan College ""In a culture so divided over doctrinal bias, it is refreshing to come across a scholar who works to reconcile all truth, be it biblical or scientific. Dr. Stallings has a deep commitment to truth-seeking and conciliatory reflection. His breadth of knowledge and research will lead the honest reader to a significant encounter with the evidence of scientific exploration and the Judaic-Christian confession from the witness of scripture. In this book you will discover that these two realities--geological history and the Genesis account--are, in fact, one consistent record of God's creative activity in the cosmos and upon the earth. Stallings has given both fields of scholarship new strata in which to dig."" --Tom Stephenson, Pastor, First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Wilmington, Ohio W. Joseph Stallings is a Christian evidential apologist, a devout Wesleyan theologian, and a longtime pastor in the North Carolina Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church.
