Product Description

A fascinating history of the pre-Darwinian controversy between secular scientists and "scriptural geologists"--- believers in a young Earth. Mortenson's thoroughly researched study examines the reasons behind the beliefs early 19th-century English Christians held about the Earth's age; the controversy that rocked the English church before publication of Darwin's book; and the part the scriptural geologists played in the debate. A must-read for any creationist! 300 pages, softcover from Master Books.

Publisher's Description

Many people in the Church today have the idea that "young-earth" creationism is a fairly recent invention, popularized by fundamentalist Christians in the mid-20th century. Is this view correct? In fact, scholar Terry Mortenson has done fascinating original research on this subject in England, and documents that several leading, pre-Darwin scholars and scientists, known as "scriptural geologists" did not believe in long ages for the earth. Mortenson sheds light on the following: Before Darwin, what did the Church believe about the age of the earth? Why did it believe this way? What was the controversy that rocked the Church in 19th-century England? Who were the "scriptural geologists"? What influences did the Church contend with even before Darwin's book? What is the stance of the Church today?
