    Excellent Creationist Book on the Grand Canyon

    Grand Canyon---A Different View was complied by Tom Vail, and contributors include John MacArthur (Author of The MacArthur Study Bible) and Ken Ham (Founder of The Creation Museum). Both are trusted authors in our home, and I was excited to see them listed as contributors to the book. John MacArthur's rebuttal to the Big Bang Theory was simple and accurate: "If you don't believe in the Book of Genesis, then you are left with the incredible notion that nobody times nothing equals everything." In reading this, I was reminded that we are all in need of having our eyes opened so we can, as the psalmist states, see wondrous things from God's law. I thought too of the English martyr, John Bradford, who when seeing a criminal going to be executed for his crimes, uttered "There, but for the grace of God go I."

    One of the great aspects of the book, is that it clearly lays out the evolutionary thought process, and then challenges the logic with both Biblical and Scientific evidence. One example is in on page 30 where the author explains how, for the evolutionist, the river has been the "primal force in the formation of the the Grand Canyon." As he goes on to explain though, prior to the building of the Glen Canyon Dam, the river had been transporting 500,000 tons of sediment in a single day. If the river supposedly did take 70 million years to erode the Grand Canyon, where did all that sediment material go? In the pages following, he explains how for a creationist, the Grand Canyon was built after or perhaps during the catastrophic event of Noah's Flood. Such massive flood waters would have easily cut through the canyon. The sections are kept simple and don't dive too deeply into any one topic, but they give an excellent springboard for further research if desired.

    The photos are definitely one of the most noteworthy features in the book. The photographer did a magnificent job of portraying the Grand Canyon from many perspectives. Since most of the readings in the book are on the more challenging end, in my mind this is what most kids are going to be interested in! Photos include those of the basement rocks, water-eroded hollows, fossils of nautiloids, Marble Canyon, and Tapeats Sandstone in Carbon Creek. I gazed in awe at a photo depicting a lightning storm in the canyon and photos picturing streams rushing downward over gorges. Kids and adults alike are sure to find this book a treasure trove of awe inspiring scenes.

    MasterBooks has many wonderful books out that can be used for reference as well as pleasure reading. Although the book is small, it is the type that would great for a coffee table type display as the readings were short, (most were only a page or two), and the pictures lovely, thus making it possible for a reader to peruse a little, without starting on a full length reading drive. The Grand Canyon---A Different View is another fine book that will be used in our home not only for educational purposes, but for pure enjoyment.

    *Thanks to Master Books, a division of New Leaf Publishing Group for providing a free copy to me in exchange for my honest review.

    This is an excellently illustrated and easy to read book. My fourteen year old is always struggling with unproven theories being given as fact and this book was very refreshing for him.
