Was Adam the first man? Was man created by divine act in less than one day almost 6,000 years ago, as the Bible suggests?

Or did man appear 200,000 years ago as the culmination of numerous human-like species that existed during a span of millions of years, as the scientific record shows?

Both cannot be right. Or can they?

Why look at both sources of knowledge?

I initially came to think that science books answered everything. Yet, by my fourth year at university, some fundamental questions concerning our origins began to re-appear.  Teens who experience a very detailed science education on origins seemingly in conflict with Sunday school teachings are confused.  I realized that my nephews were asking the same questions and so where other kids their age. Like me, they were not getting satisfactory answers.

I decided to work through the issue when I wrote my book “The Broken Gift.” The book covers such topics as when humankind appeared, from a spiritual and scientific perspective; who was the first man and what did he look like.  Why we are in some ways similar to apes and in others completely different; What does it mean?

The Broken Gift is based on the Book of Genesis which is part of the Judeo-Christian biblical canon. Genesis is also a major source for the Koran. Thus, The Broken Gift is applicable to Christians, Jews and many Muslims. As well as science enthusiasts and readers who love to explore intriguing possibilities.
There is also a free companion iPhone app, Bible Clock (, enter Scientific time in the Bible Clock to find the corresponding biblical time and explore what other events were going on around the same time.
