No, not really, but I believe the essential point of his argument is that
creation took both 6 days and 4.5 billion years (or 15 billion if you
include the Big Bang?), the former from God's frame of reference, and the
latter from ours. He argues that God's frame of reference was very
different. But it's been a while (several years) since I read it and the
details elude me.
Perhaps Bryan Bishop can fill you in more, and describe the theme of the
new book (?).
