About the Author

As president of the Institute for Creation Research (ICR) in Texas, and a widely respected author in his own right, Dr. John Morris brings an impressive combination of scientific knowledge and uncompromising faith to his work. With his Ph.D. in Geological Engineering, he has authored a number of articles, publications, and books - including those on geology and the biblical truths of creation. Titles include The Young Earth and Is the Big Bang Biblical? He is also the co-author of The Modern Creation Trilogy.
Dr. Steven Austin received his doctorate in geology from Pennsylvania State University. His specialty is the sedimentary processes that form rock strata, fossils, and fossil fuels. While a student at the University of Washington before the 1980 eruptions, Dr. Austin walked on the slopes of Mount St. Helens seeking to understand the processes that formed the Earth. He has led 15 research expeditions to the Grand Canyon, written numerous research papers, and lectured widely on creation. Footprints in the Ash is his third published book.

Dating - in Geology at least- relies on an often stated presupposition: That whatever happended in the past happended slowly and at a constant rate. Well, things for dating are about to change as geologists take on board "catastrophic" events. One such "catastrophic" event is the Mount St Helens explosion which occurerd in the 80's. Geologists have now been able to carefully document the changes that occured with the eruption of Mount St Helens. What they found will fundamentally change the way we look at geological dating. In this book on the events following the eruption of Mount St Helens, the authors carefully show how a catastrophic event can cause sedimentation and erosion previously only assumed as possible over very long time periods. This is a must read for those interested in geological dating.

Geologists make Amazing observations in the aftermath of eruption!! The authors do a great job here, clearly & carefully presenting the results of catastrophic events upsetting many long held geological beliefs. The hard evidences are there to be seen before our eyes!! This book is readable by everyday folks, as well as providing "meat" for the professional. Steve Austin is currently on my Hit Parade of geologists & authors. The book itself has an attractive format & is very well made. I'm really glad I spent the money on it.

For anyone interested in Geology / Earth Science -I also recommend his texts & DVD on the Grand Canyon. These are real eye openers on the cutting edge of science.

The DVD you will be wanting along with this book is entitled: "Mt. St. Helens : Explosive Evidence For Catastrophe". Invite some friends over & break out the popcorn.

This book tells of the things happening on the mountain after the dust settled. I am amazed at God's providence in the aftermath of an apparent disaster. Good and marvelous things do come out of the bad because that is the way HE works. I know that the God of the universe is in complete charge and will make things right. It was HIS plan in the beginning. The author got all the details and the pictures were marvelous as well. I would like to get more books by this person.

The clearly observed consequences of this explosion demonstrate the rapidity in which volcanic eruptions create catastrophic changes both locally and and world-wide. Despite the dramatic changes following Mount St. Helens' blow, it was of significantly lower intensity than Krackatoa and far less violent than volcanic eruptions during the Noaic Flood and the years that followed it.

Outstanding book pointing to the Mount St. Helens explosion and how rock layers formed very quickly during the volcanic eruption. Sound evidence for how rock layers can form quickly (within days) and don't take millions of years!

Format: Hardcover
John Morris and Steven A. Austin offer evidence for a young earth from the powerful explosion of Mount St. Helens (May 18, 1980). The MSH eruption produced streams of mud, massive covering from ash, much of life extinguished, and unforeseen geographical evidence including volcanic data that lead the writers to a Young Creationists viewpoint (ICR, AIG).

The writers in an easy-to-understand style reveal:

- The geographic volcanic cataclysm that "recreated the process" which helped form the astonishing wonder of the Grand Canyon.
- The volcanic process resulted in widespread death that later left the ingredients for new life to sprout up
- Rapid formation of geographic strata, tree deposits (pre-petrified), and spectacular land features

If you haven't read any young creationists works, if are a skeptic searching for unpopular positions, or if you like to read fascinating religious perspective, then pick up "Footprints in the Ash."

A DVD that compliments the book was produced by Austin: "Mount St. Helens: Explosive Evidence for Catastrophe."

I was very impressed with this book. In short compass, Morris confronts a number of old-earth arguments with observable facts from the 1980 Mt. St. Helens eruption - hundreds of feet of Grand Canyon type strata deposited in a matter of days; canyons cut deep into bedrock with the release of waters from Spirit Lake; the first stages of possible coal formation begun and could result in coal if Spirit Lake were covered by lava from a new explosion. And we Christians have to be the ones to apologize for faith in creationism and catastrophism (Great Flood) when the observable facts are on our side?? I also thought the photography, design, and quality of the book were excellent. A very beautiful and thought-provoking book.

I was at a museum and saw a display that talked about how the Mount St. Helens eruption and after-effects had many interesting and surprising results, showing how such dramatic events can result in geological structures than many would think would take millions of years to form. I was interested in learning more about this, and this book delivered. The book has many great color photos and diagrams and is careful about precise science (it's written by two Ph.D.s) while clearly defining terms so that the lay reader can easily follow.
