Content descriptions

General Note:
On the front cover: "Carol Hill, Gregg Davidson, Tim Helble, & Wayne Ranney, editors".
Summary, etc.:
From the Introduction: "The Grand Canyon of the Colorado River is one of our plant's most compelling and recognizable landforms. ... It is the rare individual who, upon seeing the Grand Canyon for the first time, does not ask, 'How could this have formed?' ... It took centuries, even millennia, for humans to comprehend that the history of our planet is contained in rocks, but once this insight was achieved, the story of planet Earth began to be understood. Exploring and discovering the Earth's geologic story was not about challenging religious beliefs. The earliest scientists in the days after the Reformation believed that science could show the precise manner in which the Creator had accomplished the task of creating natural phenomena such as the Grand Canyon. As more and more evidence accumulated, scientists, many of whom were outspoken Christians, became increasingly convinced that the history of the Earch was vast and complex. Somewhat surprisingly, it was not until the beginning of the twentieth century that religious opposition began to be voiced against the antiquity of the Earth. ... Thus, we find modern society confused and polarized on the topic. ... It is to be hoped that this controversy will,over many years, end much as the one with Galileo did. In this book, you will find answers to questions you may have about the science of geology and how it works to arrive at certain conclusions. ... [T]o deny an old age for the Earth or the Grand Canyon, while embracing other aspects of science, is essentially a statement that science works only when we agree with the outcome. In this book, you will find explanations of how the Grand Canyon came to look the way it does, along with assessments of Young Earth/flood geology arguments to the contrary."
