    Thanks for making Conrad Hyers' article on "Dinosaur Religion: On Interpreting and Misinterpreting the Creation Texts" available to all of us. I read it avidly since Ted Davis recommended it so highly. I was not disappointed. It is the best interpretation of the first chapter of Genesis I have ever read. I want to add my recommendation of it to everyone on this list serve.

  For everyone's information, Conrad Hyers' arguments are developed at book length in "The Meaning of Creation: Genesis and Modern Science" (1984, John Knox Press). I believe the book is still available, but am not sure. Conrad also wrote a new essay on the hermeneutics of Genesis for my edited volume "Perspectives on an Evolving Creation."
