I've recently discovered that a book I've been wanting to read but have never had the time for is available to read online. I still don't have the time for it, but now I know it's available, and I'm looking forward to it when I get the chance. It's Creation Revealed in Six Days by P. J. Wiseman. The claim, as you can probably guess from the title, is that the days of creation are meant to refer to the six days on which God revealed the events of Genesis 1 to its human author. A very interesting and ingenious solution, although it seems to run up against the fourth commandment which states that we should work six of our days and rest on the seventh, just as God worked six of his days and rested (or is resting) on his seventh. However, I note that Wiseman has an entire chapter on this point, so we'll see.
