In the Beginning: Compelling Evidence for Creation and the Flood
This is a valuable asset for any student interested in biblical cosmology. It presents well documented research in an understandable format, addressing a vast array of cosmological considerations. Arguments are framed from a scientific platform, yet the author faithfully demonstrates that objective, empirical, observational science does not contradict the teaching of Scripture but rather supports it. One major focus of the book is placed on the Flood and the author’s “Hydroplate Theory” as superior scientific explanations to current geological phenomena, both of which find their basis in Scripture. The author argues that the division in Peleg’s day was a water division (p. 254) and argues against a canopy theory (pp. 260-268). Both of these issues ought not to be argued dogmatically from a scientific perspective, but should be examined from a careful exegetical analysis of Scripture. Dealing with 137 categories of scientific evidence, this volume is accessible to the non-technical student, yet avails valuable technical data as well for the more serious researcher. A well recommended resource.
