Dr. Richard S. Hess, Earl S. Kalland Professor of Old Testament and Semitic Languages at Denver Seminary, contributed a chapter studying Genesis 1-3 in the volume on Discovering Biblical Equality, IVP 2005, edited by Rebecca M. Groothuis and Ronald W. Pierce with Gordon D. Fee as a contributing editor. A critique of this article appeared in the Journal of Biblical Manhood and Womanhood (volume 10, spring 2005). In Dr. Hess’ article, linked below, he provides a detailed evaluation of this critique as well as an overall perspective on the fundamental issues dividing the two contributors. Disputes regarding the use of New Testament texts vs. the use of Old Testament texts, the creation order, and the acts of naming receive special consideration. The reader will also learn about the major differences in the use of Scripture in this important discussion.
