English to English translations [PRO] Art/Literary - Religion / A book about the Creation/evolution debate
English term or phrase:based
Once Creation, the Fall and the Flood are brought into question as history, then this brings immediately into disrepute, not just the statements of the Apostles (who, one recognizes, were fallible men), but of the Lord Jesus Christ himself who appealed to Genesis as history. The whole meaning of sin and redemption is blurred and lost if we lose the anchor of Genesis. The Puritan poet Milton saw the grandeur of redemption ***based*** on a firm belief in the Bible. The greatness of seventeenth century commitment to a biblical worldview is reflected in his epic poems ‘Paradise Lost’ and ‘Paradise Regained’.
Who is based on a firm belief in Scripture: Milton or redemption?
