NCSE Evolution and Climate Education Update for 2016/10/07

(by NCSE Deputy Director Glenn Branch)

Dear friends of NCSE,

A preview of a new book about the geology of the Grand Canyon.

A GLIMPSE OF THE GRAND CANYON, MONUMENT TO AN ANCIENT EARTH

NCSE is pleased to offer a free preview of The Grand Canyon, Monument
to an Ancient Earth: Can Noah's Flood Explain the Grand Canyon, edited
by Carol Hill, Gregg Davidson, Tim Helble, and Wayne Ranney (Kregel
Publications, 2016). The preview consists of the foreword, by Wayne
Ranney, and chapter 7, "Using the Present to Understand the Past," by
Stephen Moshier and Gregg Davidson, which discusses modern
environments that are "comparable to Grand Canyon landscapes that
existed in the past."

Praising The Grand Canyon, Monument to an Ancient Earth, Davis A.
Young writes, "The authors, most of whom are Christians, have
systematically contrasted the claims of so-called flood geologists
with the actual details of Grand Canyon geology. In doing so, they
have utterly demolished the flood hypothesis with an avalanche of
geologic evidence sufficient to fill a canyon," and John W. Geissman
adds that the book is a "[r]ichly illustrated, superbly organized, and
exceptionally readable overview of the Grand Canyon."
