54 of 70 people found the following review helpful By C. L. Huffman on December 29, 2004
Format: Hardcover
This book is a well-written study on geology. Starting with the different types of rocks and how they are formed, to geological formations, fossils and the like. Go to their website for a fantastic free study guide to accompany the book. This book includes evidence in observed history to back up theories of the young earth, biblical flood and post-flood activities such as stalactites that have formed under monuments built less than 200 years ago, fossilized bone from less than 50 years, and large canyons formed by recent floodwaters. This book is excellent in reporting how various dating methods work and the assumptions used to manipulate the results. Earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic activity, water currents...it's all here!

In light of the recent devastation of the earthquake in South Asia, it is prudent to rediscover the potency of these things we call "natural disasters." Just one earthquake has caused so much damage; imagine how much more so with multiple earthquakes, floodwaters, and volcanic activity, just to touch the surface of what occurred during the great Flood of Noah.

Format: Hardcover
"The Geology Book" is a nonfiction book about geology and how the rock formations we see around us came to be. The author assumed that he had a Christian audience and occasionally spoke in terms of "God created" and the like. He clearly explained each topic and defined the few scientific terms in the text (though there's also a glossary in the back).

There were full color pictures and illustrations. In the back, there's a 12 by 24 inch pull-out full-color poster titled "When the Earth Moves" with pictures from the book. I think 11-year-olds on up can easily understand the information in this book.

The introduction claims that the book will compare gradualism to catastrophic explanations for geological formations, but the author does so only in a very subtle way. I liked how it was handled, but I expected a more obvious comparison after reading the introduction. Overall, I'd recommend this book to children who are interested in learning more about geology from a scientist with a Christian perspective.

Chapter 1 explained the layers of Earth (crust, mantle, etc.). Chapter 2 described the rock types (igneous, sedimentary, metamorphic). Chapter 3 talked about the earth surface (plains, plateaus, mountains, erosional features like canyons). Chapter 4 described geological processes and rates (erosion, deposition, fossilization, volcanism, deformation of rocks, formation of metamorphic rocks, radioisotope decay and dating, etc.).

Chapter 5 discussed several ways to date the age of the earth (erosion, chemicals in the ocean, sediments in ocean, atmosphere, magnetic field). Chapter 6 covered the great geologic events of the past (Creation, Flood, Ice Age). Chapter 7 answered ten common questions (how was the Grand Canyon formed?, what causes the geysers in Yellowstone Park?, etc.). Chapter 8 discussed what the Bible says about what the future Earth will be like.

26 of 36 people found the following review helpful By S. Brown on April 5, 2006
Format: Hardcover
For openers, I'd like to add to the previous review as a Baptist by saying that we also still believe in the young earth view.

Also, to the reviewer that commented that this book belongs in the "religious section," if that were the case, then any book trying to present the case for evolution would belong there as well. In order for anything to be accepted as scientific fact, one criterea is that it has to be observable. Anything beyond that is restricted to the area of theory and (yes, even for an evolutionist) faith.

Now, onto the book itself.

The illustrations were indeed excellent, and the content was well written. It would probably go over the head of a first grader (unless the first grader can read words like "radioisotope" and is at least familiar with the periodic table of elements.) The book reads like a textbook, and isn't one I would picture a kid reading just for fun, unless he or she is deeply interested in geology, (but if they are, they'll get alot out of this book.) I'd recommend it as a homeschool textbook, or for a school library.

Good book but too brief. This is not a Geology text book but a brief introduction to Geology. It is a good book to use as a supplement to a more complete geology book.

Well-researched, geologic evidence of rapid rock formation: showing evidence of global flood during Noah's day and that rock layers do not necessarily need millions of years to form. Scientifically accurate, and not too technical. Geared towards young adults.

28 of 42 people found the following review helpful By Jennifer A. Slattery on November 17, 2005
Format: Hardcover
This book is wonderfully written and helps the reader to assertaine the facts regarding science and the assumptions made regarding the facts. Example: Fact: the earth is made of miles and miles of sediments deposit. Assumption 1:these formed over millions of years of gradual sediment deposit. Assumption 2: these formed rapidly during a worldwide flood. This book helps the reader see that in regard to the evolution/creation conflict, the facts themselves are neutral and are only interpreted based on previously held beliefs. This book also helps readers see that there are many scientists with PHD's in all fields who do not believe in the religion of evolution.

I love that these books are available! It is so difficult to find good quality science resources for use in our Christian homeschool that do not have evolutionary /old Earth content! This book is great! It is good quality and very readable, with great pictures too! Great for my younger elementary kids, but would work just as well for middle and high school kids too :) I will buy more from this series!
