The Genesis Gap and The Ruin Reconstruction Theory teaching is based on something observed in the scriptures by Bible scholars as far back as the 2nd century AD. The doctrine recognizes a gap of time that is revealed in the first 2 verses of Genesis chapter 1 and a catastrophic judgment that caused the earth to become without form and void (Genesis 1:2). There are however many other scriptural references that reveal a pre-adamic event that involved the revolt of angels led by the archangel Lucifer that is believed to have caused this catastrophic judgment of flood and darkness on the earth, prior to the re-creation of it as the domain for Adam (mankind). There are many reputable Bible study sources, including Study-Bibles and respected Christian teachers and preachers who accept the doctrine as being scripturally-backed. There are also reputable teachers and Bible scholars who do t accept it. It is my intention in this book, to offer scriptural backing for this doctrinal belief that I believe to be well-substantiated in the Holy Scriptures. If this subject is of interest to you and you have t heard or read a complete representation of this teaching, you will be intrigued by what is contained within the chapters of this book. - Jim Lowrance CHAPTER ONE: What is the Genesis Gap?
