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.

This book was very well put together with wonderful pictures and clear explanations.
Mary R. Baugh
I have not read much of this book, from what I have read I am confident that it's comparison of the events surrounding the eruption of Mt.
Dorothy I. Lanz
For anyone interested in Geology / Earth Science -I also recommend his texts & DVD on the Grand Canyon.

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.

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!

This book is not for people who have convinced themselves that "creation scientists" have nothing worthwhile to say. For anyone else, this book provides some stunning research and amazing photos showing that significant geological features can be changed very rapidly. This in contrast to the slow, steady approach assumed by "consensus geology."

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.

Format: Hardcover
Great book about the May 18, 1980 volcanic eruption at Mount St. Helens in Washington State. The evidence gathered from this catastrophe has converted many secular scientists away from uniformitarianism. Mount St. Helen's eruption essentially carved out a mini-Grand Canyon through mudslides, pyroclastic flows, steam explosions and air fall tephra in a very short period of time. Lots of stupendous photographs.
