One challenge to biblical authority is our understanding of Adam. Freshly translated, this acknowledged modern classic defends the historic church position that all human beings descend from Adam as the first human being.
Endorsement Given the recent debates about the existence of Adam, this vigorous defense of historical Adam is relevant now as it was when first published in Dutch. The exegetical and theological issues remain the same today. Versteeg shows with vigor and cogency that the New Testament's teaching requires a historical Adam, and his defense deserves the attention of all who are interested in the question. - Vern Poythress
