By Steven H Propp TOP 100 REVIEWER on October 11, 2011
Format: Paperback
Harry Rimmer (1890-1952) was an American creationist, apologetics writer, and evangelist; he wrote a number of books, such as MODERN SCIENCE AND THE GENESIS RECORD, Dead Men Tell Tales, etc.

This book was first written in 1936 (and was republished in 1973). Rimmer wrote in the Foreword, "The matter contained in this volume of apologetics has been delivered in lecture form before hundreds of audiences and student groups, totalling many thousands of auditors... The author has revised this material and has put it in this permanent form, that it might be available to libraries and schools that require this type of apologetics."

Here are some additional quotations from the book:

"We would unhesitatingly state that when men of science agree unanimously upon any correlated body of facts and do not change their conclusions or agreements concerning these facts for several thousand years, we will then be willing, if necessary, to discard the Bible and accept their conclusions instead!" (Pg. 13)
"How did Job know (Job 38:7) that at the dawn of creation the morning stars sang together... At one time it was futilely attempted to evade this question by suggesting that this was poetic imagination on the part of Job... (but) through the marvels of modern physics we have learned many things about the tonal value of light." (Pg. 127)
"At any rate it may easily be seen that a man would have no difficulty remaining alive for three days and three nights in an air chamber as extensive as (a whale's), containing 686 cubic feet of space." (Pg. 183)
"Parallel accounts in the records of other nations also prove that this account (i.e., Joshua making the sun stand still) is not a myth..." (Pg. 269)

Format: Paperback
My mother, (L.S. Tuttle, a Southern Baptist, & a Spanish college professor) first saw & heard the author of this book, Dr. Harry Rimmer, D.D., Sc. D. in the early 1930's at a lecture series at Ridgecrest, NC. This book is basically those lectures, in print. (Everybody told him he should publish those lectures, so he did. It was first copyrighted in 1936.) If you have ANY interest in the subject of Creationism vs. Evolution then this book is a MUST READ!

Here is a list of the chapter titles: Modern Science & the First Fundamental, The Harmony of Science & the Scriptures, Ancient Wisdom, or Revelation?, Modern Science in an Ancient Book, Modern Science: Jonah & the Whale, Modern Science & the Ark of Noah, Modern Science & the Deluge, & Modern Science & the Long Day of Joshua.

(It give you goose bumps to read how modern day "non-believer" astronomers & scientists have discovered thru looking at the night skies that there is a day (plus a few hours) "MISSING" from the stars, & planets, & constellations in space, and how the Holy Bible explains what happened to it!)

Science answers what and how, while Religion answers who and why. As long as each discipline stays in it's realm everything's good. But a true believer in God CAN also be a scientist, or science teacher, just as a scientist CAN learn to believe in a Creator/ God. PLEASE READ THIS BOOK! IT'LL GIVE YOU GOOSE BUMPS! This should ALWAYS stay in print! I'd rate this book as 7 stars, if they went that far up, for perfection, but it only goes to 5 stars. So I give it 5 stars, for the best!

I always appreciate the work of anyone who takes the stand that the Bible is true. The information in this work however is hopelessly outdated; so much so that I doubt it's feasible even to rewrite it. I bought the paperback and believe me this is not a $30 book. It pains me to say that, but it is true. My 3 star rating includes 1 star for the author's stance that the Bible is true. This work is surviving on it's reputation, not it's current usefulness. Sorry to say, I can't recommend it.
