Playing on the title of Albert Schweitzer’sThe Quest of the Historical Jesus, William VanDoodewaard has presented the modern church with a similar quest, this time for the historical Adam. However, VanDoodewaard presents more than simply an overview of Adam’s existence throughout church history. As the subtitle reveals, the issue of Adam’s existence is situated within the wider framework of Genesis and hermeneutics.
