"'The two most powerful forces shaping our civilization today are science and religion. Through science man ience, man strives to learn more of the mysteries of creation. Through religion, he seeks to know the Creator.' These words, spoken by Dr. Wernher von Braun in 1966, offer insight into Deborah Godin's purpose in Translating Genesis.

In her book, Godin explores the worlds of science and religion by using them as metaphors in the macro context of creation. Stylistically, Translating Genesis is patterned after the Bible - there are poems of genesis, prayers, psalms and songs, histories, and genealogies. This format leads her to reconcile science and religion by showing that creation is evolution, not opposed to it. Geographically, the poems achieve their discoveries in the prairies and foothills of western Canada, particularly in and around the city of Calgary, Alberta." - from rear cover.
