Note to the authors of this book: There is no such thing as the "Evolutionary Geologic Column" (page 36).

As a Christian, I think we should approach God's creation with truth and scientific understanding and not wishful thinking.

Overall, the book was well done, provided some interesting information, and was presented in an easy to understand format.

Please don't let the biased views on this book deter you. It is a beautiful book, from a creation viewpoint. How strange that people feel the need to give such lengthy opinions with judgmental cricicism. The pictures are lovely and clearly a creation science is being presented. They description doesn't pretend otherwise. Christians are entitled to believe in creation, obviously. Science actually does support these claims and remember...look into things for yourself.. There are always two sides to every issue. Enjoy book for the pretty book that is is and don't believe everything our traditional science background teaches you.

I don't have a problem with expressing your beliefs, but when you intentionally misrepresent the facts to make your point, you are doing a disservice to your faith.

If being a geologist makes me biased then so be it. This book represents an achingly inept attempt to push a square peg into a round hole insofar as a reasoned explanation of how the Grand Canyon came into existence. The only good I can see in this book is that the cover photo is quite nice and the contents provide sufficient fodder for even the most marginally versed casual reader to argue (successfully) against the bankrupt minority belief that the canyon's creation is the result of supernatural intervention in the form of a cataclysmic flood. This book is a joke and the author should feel some degree of shame for his disingenuous attempt to mask a religious agenda as 'science.'

I met Tom in church and what a blessing he is to the world of real-life, gently-presented apologetics. He takes a stand for Truth, which is the Biblical account of events. I have learned to be skeptical not of Christianity (as I was as an atheist biologist in my youth), but rather skeptical of the present evolutionary, no-God, dogma, which is being force-fed to society via our public schools. Oy-veh! This is for people with an open mind and open heart. Not for haters of God, unless perhaps to plant a seed. Who knows.

A great book about the Grand Canyon from God's point of view. Well written and documented. We even bought one for our friends who made the trip with us. The Grand Canyon is an example of God's wonderful creation.

I do believe in Creationism, but I was very annoyed with the amount of biblical overtones.
I understand that Salvation message needs to be shared, but I was hoping for more of a scientific book, instead it just repeated the salvation story over and over again. I was just kind of hoping for scientific points about the flood etc
I like more technical books - and this felt like a blog.

Format: Hardcover
Tom has compiled a delightful book replete with exquisite Canyon images. Yes, it has Biblical scriptures and religious speech; yes it has scientific content, and yes, there is dispute about whether it offers "good" or "bad" science. The basic premise is that the Canyon was formed in a short period of time from a catastrophic flood, rather than over the ages via a wandering rivulet. And yes, that is a "creationist" view. But the scientists who cry "bad!, bad!, ban that book!" are playing censor a bit prematurely, particularly in light of the half-century controversy over the "scablands" in eastern Washington. In that instance, a renegade scientist proposed that a huge eroded region resulted from a single, catastrophic flood, only to be insulted and excluded from the "good" science community. But he persevered, and fifty years later was vindicated by high honors and general scientific acceptance of his theory. Frankly, the complainers' position is a perilous one--even arch evolutionists like Stephen Jay Gould have largely dismissed classic evolution in favor of catastrophic change theories. For the scientists to blindly endorse their secular orthodoxy is as silly as a person thoughtlessly endorsing theology. All Tom asks is that readers look at the Canyon from a different view, and see what they see..... And hey, if you want to experiment a little, go find a broad, muddy ditch, build a dirt dam and see what happens when it washes away--chances are that you'll see a muddy miniature Canyon. Gee, maybe Tom has a point after all?

This is a beautiful, well written book that gives an explanation of the formation on this magnificent canyon from a biblical point of view. Some of the top Christian creation scientists and theologians from around the world provide their views on its formation. The pictures are spectacular. It is the next best thing to a visit to the canyon.
