"The authors delineate in inadequacies of uniformitarianism and evolutionary theory. They stress the philosophic and scientific necessity of a "creation of apparent age," as well as the place of geologic and hydrologic catastrophe, especially that of the great deluge during the days of Noah. Replete with empirical data from the disciplines of hydrology, geology, and archaeology, 'The Genesis Flood' asks readers to consider the orientation of pertinent data within the framework of bibical creationism and catastrophism. Many illustrations, charts, and diagrams, along with extensive indices, help to clarify the harmonization of the bibical record and scientific evidence. Opposing viewpoints age given careful and courteous treatment" --Cover, p. 4.
