Rocking around the Christmas tree

And while we're on the subject of the Earth probably being a little older than 6 thousand years or so... check out this book review of a book that I spotted in the shops the other day, it starts like this:

"Saying that The Bible, Rocks and Time: Geological Evidence for the Age of the Earth by Davis A. Young and Ralph F. Stearley (Downers Grove: InterVarsity Press, 2008) is probably the best book of its kind would not be saying enough, since there really is no other book of its kind: a treatment of the varied and overwhelmingly consistent evidence for the antiquity of our planet, written by Evangelical Christians with the aim of not only making the scientific case for the age of the Earth, but also helping conservative Christian readers navigate the issues of theology and Biblical interpretation that go along with such a conclusion, and all the while pointing out the difficulties and at times dishonesty of the young-earth creationist position."



  1. Hi Jonathan Most interested in reading your post and the linked review. I will send you a copy of critical review to give a bit of balance.
