One should not be surprised to find this historian of science and Christian scholar delving into a text of seminal interest equally to science and theology. Jaki's review of the way rabbinic, patristic, medieval, reformation, renaissance, and modern interpreters have grappled with Genesis 1 is not meant to be merely informative: Jaki means to underline the essentially metaphysical and theological nature of the narrative against those from whatever era who would attempt to harmonize it with the science of the day and thus lessen the impact of its uniquely majestic proclamation. Besides being a concise education in the history of exegesis of a monumentally important biblical text, this essay reminds us repeatedly of the inevitable widowhood of those who marry themselves to the spirit of the age.
