The review is by young-Earth creationist Marcus Ross, who earned his PhD in geology from the University of Rhode Island a few years ago, and now teaches at Liberty University in Virginia.
Ross critisizes The Bible, Rocks and Time for what it does not cover in depth: the historicity of Adam and Eve, the Fall, the old-Earth/theistic evolution understanding of the Flood, etc. While these are important issues, Ross seems to miss the point that this book was not aiming to be a comprehensive statement on all issues of origins, but only on a narrow segment of this: geology. The critique of young-Earth creationism given by Young and Stearley from a geological perspective is in my mind devastating.
Ross concludes with his belief that young-Earth creationism is superior to any old-Earth/theistic evolutionary views by stating:
“This comprehensive framework [i.e. young-Earth creationism] fosters understandings of sin, the problem of evil, divine nature, judgment, Christ as the Second Adam, salvation, and eschatological redemption. A full view of the Creation can only be acquired from the whole of Scripture—from Genesis to Revelation—not by focusing, even intently, on but one chapter.”
As far as I can tell, Young and Stearley hold to thoroughly orthodox views on all of these doctrines, and then some. They simply were not the topic of the book.
Grace and Peace
