A short historical study by Peter Enns. Peter Enns, author of this essay posted on the BioLogos Foundation blog is an evangelical theologian, author of several books and commentaries, including Inspiration and Incarnation. Introduction The question of the date of writing Genesis is not new; it is central in modern university studies of the Bible since the seventeenth century. Unfortunately, this academic development is often considered largely negative, as if it hindered a consensus opinion set for several thousand years among Jews and Christians.
