The ideas expressed in this site are from a larger study that I have been working on. Please open it and download it by clicking on the Word Icon. It will give a fuller idea of how an allegorical approach can explain the early chapters of Genesis.
I have recently re-published the study after receiving a number of comments and suggestions.
Please let me know if you have trouble downloading it, and I will email you a copy (my email address is on the Contact page).
