Product Description

This excellent and informative work has been thousands of years in the making! It's the exciting story of fossils: How were they formed? Where are they found? How old are they? How are they extracted?

A one-of-a-kind book, it explains how coal and oil are formed, how the Grand Canyon was created, how to interpret the geologic column from a creationist perspective, and how to identify various fossils. It refutes the horse and whale evolutionary models, explains the four Cs of biblical creation, and compares this model with evolution's model of time, chance, struggle, and death.

Filled with scores of full-color photos and illustrations, you'll learn everything about fossils from a creationist perspective while also understanding the shortcomings of the evolutionary model of fossils. Author Dr. Gary Parker has not only a thorough education of paleontology, but also many years of experience in the field. Here are the scientific answers to the puzzling questions about fossils that even non-scientists can understand. Learn how to build your own fossil collection, including how to extract fossils, identify them, as well as how to store and display them. You'll also fund a full-color pull-out poster and a glossary and index for ease of reference. Recommended for ages 6 and up.

    I bought this for my daughter. Right now she enjoys listening to me read while looking at pictures, but as she gets older she can read about fossils with a creationist viewpoint. She loves science and this will be a great resource for years to come.

    I bought this book for my seven-year-old daughter. We both love finding fossils together, and I still have a rock collection from when I was a kid. This book illustrates very clearly how fossils were made, and the explanation of how the Grand Canyon was formed is excellent.

    But there are a number of things in this book which should have been corrected by now. It was first printed in 2006, and there was a little sticker in the front of my copy to correct missing info on page 5. There are several typos which make it hard for me to present this as serious information to my husband, who does not believe in a young earth.

    Also, it is an awfully slender book for $15.95. I would recommend putting these old copies on sale to finance a new edition, with corrections and updated graphics.

    "The Fossil Book" is a nonfiction book about fossil formation, types, and collection. The authors assumed they had a Christian audience, but they still gave solid, respectful reasons for why they believe Flood Geology is the better explanation for how most fossils were formed. They clearly explained each topic and defined the few scientific terms in the text (though there's also a glossary in the back). The book is suitable for 10- or 11-year-olds on up.

    There were full color pictures and illustrations. In the back, there's a 12 by 24 inch pull-out full-color poster with pictures from the book. Overall, I'd highly recommend this book to children and adults who are interested in fossils and fossil hunting.

    Chapter One explained what a fossil is, what rocks they're found in, how they're formed, and the types of fossils (including fossil fuels). Chapter Two explained what the Geologic Column is and compared Evolutionist and Flood Geologist interpretations of fossils. Chapter Three briefly covered the problems with the evolutionary interpretation of fossils and why the evidence better fits the Flood Geologist explanation. It then discussed the Grand Canyon's formation and rock layers.

    Chapter Four covered invertebrate fossils. Chapter Five covered vertebrate fossils and discussed intermediate fossils and fossil sequences. The final section described how to do fossil hunting and collection (where to look, permits needed, tools used, and how to collect, store, and display them).
