Earth's Catastrophic Past: Geology, Creation & the Flood is a two volume set by Andrew A. Snelling.
This extensive resource is a scholarly work that delves into extensive scientific evidence about the origins of the Earth. In light of bible evidence, the author presents facts and evidence that will stand even to the greatest scientific scrutiny. This is the perfect reference book for any student who wishes to investigate evolution with an objective eye. This is not simply an introductory survey of biblical creation but an advanced body of research. This is not a coffee table book depicting creation in pictures and photos- but rather a highly detailed academic work that challenges any reader. This is not a casual book to read in one sitting while in a favorite armchair. Prepare to dedicate time and mental effort into following the evidences provided by Snelling in these two volumes. So far in all my research I have not read a more extensive and thorough book on Earth's history in light of scripture. This is a valuable resource for any student- and an essential component in any science library. It arms the student with a strong basis in bridging the bible with science. As a graduate with my BS, I was impressed by this set. As far as grade level, it could be used by high school students up to college level in a geology or physical science course. This book is also perfect for the advanced biblical creation enthusiast who wants to know more than just the basics. This book goes into extensive detail not only with theology but with geology, archaeology and physical science. While this book is formatted as a reference volume with no graphics or photographs within the text, there is a section in the back of each volume with helpful supplemental graphs, charts and figures. As a blogger I received a copy of this book published by Master Books, a division of New Leaf Publishing Group for the purpose of writing this review.
