Critical Review by:

Paul Richard Strange, Sr., Reader

    "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.

    The 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 its own terms. The only way any of us can do that in a fair-minded way is to take a careful examination of the comparative uses of Biblical language.

     One 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!"
