Description: As relevant in our day as it was in his, this biblical alternative to the traditional view of creation (the view that many of us have grown up with) is based on the writings of Finis Dake. Collected primarily from his seminal work God’s Plan for Man and excerpts from the notes found in the Dake Annotated Reference Bible, Another Time, Another Place, Another Man is essentially Dake’s thought (concerning the pre-Adamite world, albeit presented in a contemporary style) and of course numerous supporting Scripture.
Another Time, Another Place, Another Man Preface:
Faith and science are locked in a battle for the hearts and minds of our generation. The war is waged perhaps most intensely in the classroom and on the campus, but the battle lines have been drawn and the conflict continues unabated in our homes, our workplaces, and our churches.
It hasn’t always been this way. Science was birthed out of the knowledge that God has created the universe with a logic and design that could be understood. Creation was a reflection of the Creator’s personality, and to pursue an understanding of the things God had made was to inquire into the nature of God himself. Thus, rather than facing each other in antagonistic opposition, faith and science traveled the same road, hand in hand.
Circumstances had changed by the mid nineteenth century. When Darwin introduced On the Origin of Species in the 1850’s, Christians were quickly on the defensive, attempting to counter the claims of evolution with whatever weapons they could fin at their disposal. Among the items in their arsenal was a theory mentioned in the writings of the early church fathers, and which found its origins in Hebrew thought. If science was uncovering evidence for an earth millions, perhaps billions of years old – then this theory could provide answers.
What had never really been openly debated suddenly became a controversial topic among theologians and academicians. If a gap did indeed exist in the creation account; if Genesis 1:1 did not follow directly into Genesis 1:2 as the next logical step in a continuous narrative, then a rethinking of the entire creation sequence was in order. On the other hand, the theory did provide room for a creation date pushed as far back into history as needed to allow for the unprecedented time spans required by contemporary scientific discoveries.
Int he early part of the twentieth century, Finis Dake grappled with this theory and found substance in what had become nothing more than a weapon to fend off those seeking o undermine the literal interpretation of the Genesis creation account. Always requiring at least “two or three plain scriptures” upon which to base his interpretation of the a biblical text, Dake found in the Bible a wealth of support for the existence of a pre-Adamite world.Finis Dake Bible
It’s our prayer that Another Time, Another Place, Another Man (a study of the pre-Adamite world) will speak to the issue of faith and science in a way that will bring both back to were they were intended by God to be – walking hand in hand.
