Have you come here to play Jesus to the lepers in your head?

A question for you scholars, lay or otherwise…

Back when I went to school in Missouri, I remember attending a lecture given by a calvinist theologian who equated the first eleven chapters of Genesis with mythology, and generally held the belief that evolution was God’s means of creation. 

That’s a terribly written generalization of the lecture, but I’m writing this on the fly.  Since I started reading up on C.S. Lewis’s understanding of myth (as in story, not mythology itself), I’ve been curious to delve a little more into those first eleven chapters, and wanted to know if anyone knew of some good books to start with. 

Andrew, I feel like I remember you tried to tackle this issue before.  Any ideas?  All other readers, you’re welcome to voice your views/suggestions too.
