Holman QuickSource Guide to Understanding Creation
The Holman QuickSource Guide to Understanding Creation surveys every major issue relating to the theology and science of creation. This includes proofs that the universe was created and designed by God, a discussion of the compatibility of Genesis with major theories in modern science, a survey of evangelical opinion regarding the age of Earth and the nature of Noah’s flood, and an analysis of ancient non-biblical creation myths. Highly trained scientists and authors Mark Whorton and Hill Roberts are uniquely qualified to report these findings that are in line with their Christian faith. The book also includes fascinating and helpful photographs and charts.
This is an easy-to-understand, but thoroughly complete, introduction to old-earth creationism. But it's way more than that, too. It answers practically every issue related to the science-faith discussion, particularly as it relates to the age of the earth. Want to know if radiometric dating is reliable? Yep, it's covered. And you'll probably actually understand it. Want to know about the various interpretations of Genesis 1 without having to read an entire book? Yep, it's there. Seriously, I can't think of a topic that isn't covered. It's full color with tons of illustrations and charts.
The best comparable I can think of is Answers in Genesis' Answers Book. Only, this book is WAY better because it has more information. Well that, and it's written from an old-earth creation perspective. Big kudos to the publisher for having the courage to get behind this valuable resource!
This book is an absolute MUST HAVE for all old-earth homeschoolers.
