GRAND CANYON: MONUMENT TO AN ANCIENT EARTH: WHY THIS BOOK WAS WRITTEN
The purpose of this book is: (1) To explain to lay persons in simple terms they can understand, why Noah's flood - as portrayed by flood geology - cannot explain Grand Canyon or any other geologic landscape on Earth. (2) To teach the basic principles of geology to lay persons by using the most beautiful photos possible. (3) To teach why flood geology is NOT science. (4) To use as a beginning geology text for non-geology students in secular and Christian colleges and universities. (5) To use in seminary workshops to equip pastor students to deal with future congregations.
The 11 authors, including professors of geology and paleontology, were selected both for their professional expertise (some have done original research in the canyon) and for their experience dealing with YEC. This book was written especially for people who have been so influenced by YEC that they no longer know what to believe. We end our book with the question: Does it really matter? Our answer is: “Truth always matters.” That is why we wrote the book.
