Roger Pilkington, a research scientist, explains the Biblical story of Genesis and reconciles the apparent dichotomy between Religion and Science. He shows harmony between the two by explaining that the writers of Genesis had no implements to aid them in their appraisal of how the universe came to be. Long ago men believed in an actual firmament -- a substantial transparent dome. Today man is freed of such errors. He explains that poetic license too must be considered in the Scriptural version of the creation of the world. Quoting passages from the Bible, he unfolds the scientific view of the world's beginnings, in a non-sectarian version which is majestic and stirring. A reverent account which successfully serves two masters.
