Forewords by Henry M. Morris and John MacArthur
Fourteen different scholars address key topics related to the age of the earth, which is the crucial issue of debate in the church regarding origins (i.e., most old-earth proponents, like young-earth creationists, reject biological evolution). Bringing to bear rigorous scholarly biblical and theological arguments in favor of a young earth, they also address much needed discussion regarding a number of contemporary interpretations of the book of Genesis. A substantial historical, theological, and exegetical defense of the biblical account of Creation, the book is designed for seminary and Bible college professors and students, ministers, missionaries, and others in ministry work.
In honor of the pioneer of biblical creationism, Dr. MacArthur considers it a “distinct and special privilege to commend this volume in the honor of Dr. John C. Whitcomb's teaching ministry.” (from his foreword) The various essays contained in this volume show that the idea of a “young earth” is not only reasonable, but certain.
“Whether you are a lay person seeking to understand how Scripture dovetails with true science, a seasoned pastor studying Genesis and grappling with conflicting opinions about the timing and duration of creation, or a scholar looking for credible resources explaining the young-earth view, you will be greatly edified.”
