Many books have been written on the Bible and evolution by scientists, but this volume is written by a biblical specialist. In Faith and Fossils Lester Grabbe, a prominent Hebrew Bible scholar, examines the Bible in its ancient context and explores its meaning in light of emerging scientific evidence. 

Both the Bible and the fossil record raise significant questions about what it means to be human, and Grabbe expertly draws on both sources to grapple with who we are and where we came from. Written in uncomplicated language and featuring eleven spectacular color plates, Grabbe’s Faith and Fossils creatively shows how science and faith intersect in questions about human origins.

"Grabbe asserts that religion and science are not necessarily incompatible and they can exist side by side harmoniously so long as the respective adherents do not poach on the others’ territory. His illuminating work will doubtless invite thought and serious discussion by both camps."
Christopher Rollston
— George Washington University
“In this wonderful volume Lester Grabbe brings to the table the profound knowledge of a gifted biblical scholar—but a knowledge that is accompanied by pastoral sensitivities. Entirely absent, therefore, are polemics. And that which is present can only be described as erudition and compassion. His Faith and Fossils will build bridges between people on all sides of this hotly debated subject. I heartily recommend it.”
"Readers will appreciate the vast survey of contemporary voices in this debate. . . . While some evangelicals try to accommodate notions of science with these texts, he demonstrates the artfulness and poetry of the biblical texts and the great distinction from scientific description."
Revue Biblique
“This volume provides a well-rounded and accessible introduction to the many questions surrounding the compatibility of subscribing to modern scientific theories about creation and evolution and believing that Bible is true and divinely inspired.”
Society for Old Testament Study Book List
“This is an excellent book that deserves a wide readership.”
