Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Genesis Flood is as timely, thought-provoking, and helpful as ever. A tour de force and a must-read resource for pastors, teachers, scientists, and anyone who is troubled by the conflict between the biblical account of creation and the ever-changing claims of modern evolutionary theory." --John MacArthur, Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California

"The publishing of The Genesis Flood fifty years ago is the recognized birth-date of a movement blessed by God, and this classic work is also now recognized as a monumental milestone in the fight against compromise in the church and for biblical inerrancy in general during our skeptical modern era." --Ken Ham, President, Answers in Genesis and The Creation Museum

"This book remains a classic work that is a must-read for those who would be informed and equip themselves both to stand on the authority of God's Word in every area of life and knowledge and to defend their Christian faith." --Andrew Snelling, BSc (Applied Geology), PhD (Geochemical Geology) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

If you think the evidence for a world wide flood is just a few marine fossils here and there on mountain peaks think again. This book will show how massive canyons were formed all around the earth how the geological formations around the earth can only be explained by a flood and how fossils really form. Henry Morris and John Whitcomb make a very convincing case

For those of you who don't know this, The Genesis Flood was the book that started the modern day creationist movement which has haunted naturalists and/or atheists ever since. This book was a fantastic read and I heartily recommend it to everyone who is even remotely interested in naturalism or creationism.

This version of the book (50th anniversary) begins with the story of the book being written, and is itself written by John Whitcomb (Henry Morris passed a few years ago). Then the meat of the book begins.

The book starts out with arguments for a universal flood, which are contrast to many views that were held between 1800-1960, such as the gap, day-age, and local flood theories. After that, the authors delve into a brief history of uniformitarianism, starting with Cuvier and ending with Lyell/Darwin.

This is where the subject of geology begins, and continues throughout the rest of the book. The book is very thorough, and covers everything from strata, sediment layers, and fossils to the atmosphere, radiocarbon dating methods, radiation levels after the flood, and far, far more!

Here is a quick excerpt from the book:
"'Condensation does not begin until the water vapor has a suitable surface on which to condense.' Consequently [before the Deluge] the higher levels of the troposphere would be virtually free of salt particles and other potential condensation nuclei. Thus such a vapor canopy could be maintained indefinitely, until something happened to mix it with the cold gases of the stratosphere and to supply meteoric or other particles for nucleation."

This book is worth anyone's time and money. It's a great read that will not leave you disappointed!

Henry M. Morris (1918-2006) was one of the foremost biblical creationists of the late 20th century; he was also the author/coauthor of books such as The Scientific Case for Creation, Scientific Creationism, What Is Creation Science?, etc. John Clement Whitcomb, Jr. (born 1924) is an Old Testament theologian and young Earth creationist, who has also written books such as The World That Perished, The Early Earth-An Introduction to Biblical Creationism, etc.

This 1961 book essentially jump-started the modern "young earth"/Flood Geology aspect of the creationist movement. The authors wrote in the Introduction, "Our present study therefore has a twofold purpose. In the first place, we desire to ascertain exactly what the Scriptures say concerning the Flood and related topics. We do this from the perspective of full belief in the complete divine inspiration and perspicuity of Scripture... The second purpose is to examine the anthropological, geological, hydrological and other scientific implications of the Biblical record of the Flood, seeking if possible to orient the data of these sciences within this Biblical framework.

Think godless evolution has all the answers? Think again. Morris and Whitcomb's classic work "The Genesis Flood" combines excellent scholarship with solid principles from the realm of science and scripture to systematically evaluate the Bibles claim that of a great, worldwide flood as recorded in Genesis. How did early theologians fall for a "bait and switch" scheme that resulted in the rise of evolutionary thought in the realm of science? What is uniformitarianism and how does its flaws poke huge holes in the theory of evolution? Why does the mere presence of so many preserved fossils (much less huge mass graves of every conceivable type of animal) support a Genesis flood? This is THE work that moved key apologists such as Answers in Genesis' Ken Ham and others to begin equipping believers with the answers to stand strong in their faith in the midst of the creation / evolution debate. An excellent resource for seekers and mature believers alike.

My father has one of the original books and he wanted to get an "updated" version. This is not updated in the sense that there's new information about the actual Genesis Flood science/theology but he does say that the "forwards are quite impressive". He's been writing his interpretations of sections of the Bible and was been quite taken with the ideas in this book. The geological and anthropological prospects, in relation to biblical teachings, caught my attention while I thumbed through it. I went ahead and bought one for myself. It looks as if it's going to be some heavy reading but I'm looking forward to learning what Whitcomb has to say.
