"This book would be especially helpful for:

  • Christian college students with a major or interest in science
  • Pastors and youth workers who need a viable, Biblically-sound alternative to young-Earth creationism
  • Non-believing scientists, doctors and engineers who reject Christianity because they think faith in Christ is incompatible with science
  • Anyone who has an interest in the relationship between science (especially geology) and the Bible
--The Geo Christian (geochristian.wordpress.com), September 11, 2008
