Bible, Rocks and Time

There is a review of the new Davis Young book (The Bible, Rocks, and Time: Geological Evidence for the Age of the Earth) on the front page of the Christianity Today web site today.

"Storming Young-Earth Creationism: But is Genesis 1 the only text at issue?"
Review by Marcus R. Ross

It's kind of an interesting piece. The book leans toward theistic evolution (I think), while the review appears to be written by a prof from Liberty who leans toward young-earth creationism.

I should try to get a copy of the book and read it over.

I've read the book, and it is excellent. The authors, Davis Young and Ralph Stearley, are Christian geologists with a commitment to Biblical inerrancy. Their position is theistic evolution, but that is not central to the book. It presents the most devastating analysis of young-Earth creationism I have read from Christian authors, and yet they are gracious in their treatment of young-Earth creationists as persons.

The reviewer, Marcus Ross, has a PhD in geology/vertebrate paleontology. He is a young-Earth creationist.
