"Christians who like serious reading which
is presented in a writing style that most of us without PhDs can grasp, (at
least, for the most part), should investigate this ground-breaking labor of
love by Timothy P. Martin, an elder in a Reformational Church in Montana, and
Jeffrey L. Vaughn, a Christian who is also a scientist.
title gives it away: these two writers are thoroughly convinced that young earth
creationism is in error! But, and this is very significant, they go to great
pains to communicate why not all of us who are old earth creationists are
telling the Biblical story right, either! They want you to weigh the Bible on

gets the hint that they are of the view that Intelligent Design is very
promising, and it is clear that they reject “atheist evolution.” (I think that
they do not do the best job possible of distinguishing between evolution, as
defined by many people who are devout Christians, and atheist evolution.)
What they do right, however, in this book of over 500 pages is give the reader
one of the most comprehensive theological defenses of why it is incorrect, and
harmful to Christian credibility, for any of us to inappropriately apply global
phrases to planet Earth. They carefully build their case for the fact that
Christian theology will come to grips with the divisive issues of the age of
the earth and the riddles of Bible prophecy together, not apart. The same
language usage rules demand the same conclusions!
A VERY WORTHY READ, IN MY HUMBLE OPINION,
FOR ALL THINKING CHRISTIANS, ESPECIALLY, PASTORS, ELDERS, AND BOTH BELIEVERS
AND NON-BELIEVERS WHO LOVE SCIENCE!"
