Editorial Reviews

Review

“Examining a wide variety of flood and creation stories across centuries, Montgomery provides an enthusiastic and valuable recounting of the history of geology and how the advances in science have consistently faced opposition from the guardians of so-called religious authority, based on a literal reading of the Bible.”
- Kirkus Reviews

“Montgomery... offers a thorough critique of creationist worldviews... while treating his opponents with respect, reflecting on both ancient and modern debates and demonstrating that Christians have been arguing among themselves about these subjects for millennia. ...The combination of historical study and humility on behalf of geology makes for an extremely persuasive work. Highly recommended.”
- John M. Kistler, Library Journal --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

His field studies have included projects in the Philippines, eastern Tibet, South America, California, and the Pacific Northwest of North America. In 2008 Montgomery received a MacArthur Fellowship.
