The Bible, Rocks and Time: Geological Evidence for the Age of the Earth
Stearley, Ralph F. and Davis A. Young

Downerís Grove, Ill.: InterVarsity Press, 2008 pp. 510. $30.00


Description: Is the Earth relatively young or very old? We've all heard the controversy. The consensus regarding the age of the Earth, based on the best geological evidence, is that it is billions of years old. But many Christians believe that the Bible teaches the Earth is only a few thousand years old at best. What are we to make of this discrepancy? Geologists Davis Young and Ralph Stearley tackle this issue head-on. Thoroughly examining historical, biblical, geological and philosophical perspectives, the amply illustrated Bible, Rocks and Time takes a comprehensive and authoritative look at the key issues related to the Earth's antiquity.

Subjects: Methods, Historical Approaches, History, Archaeology
