    Lest you think I'm an atheistic troll I'll point out I run my own young earth creation ministry; I care deeply about kids learning the truth of how reasonable the Flood of Noah's Day actually is. But this is not the book to give them. It's rather an example of how not to present the Bible and science.

    The book itself is set up ideally for its intended audience. The bright cover and small size promise an interesting read, while the layout, font, and frequent sidebars follow through. It also remains staunchly committed to the reliability of Genesis from page one which I greatly appreciate. Even Strauss' writing style suit his young audience well.

    But...

    Jesus and the Bible have the authority to tell us how it really was. No scientist can say the same. The Bible's account of Noah and the Flood of his day is so spare there is lots of room for conjecture and ideas of how things played out. Ed Strauss writes as if he barely needs to guess, he *knows* how hundreds of details "probably" happened.

    For example, Strauss knows how Noah financed the ark and who he used as contractors. He knows what kind of tree "Gopher" wood actually was. He describes the ark in such detail he knows exactly which part of the ship was used for the dinosaurs, sheep, and bees. He understands what made the first people live so long and that God "probably" just threw a gene switch to make people start dying far sooner. He knows not only the mechanisms for initiating the Flood but how long it took to split the continents (two hours).

    Strauss steps away from the popular view of the primary Flood mechanism while claiming that "many experts" agree with him. Then a few pages later he explains a related detail that goes against the model he earlier espoused. So neither the mainstream of scientists nor the maverick ones are going to like what he has to say. And that's if they can stomach his highly unscientific presentation style.

    There is hardly a page in the book that doesn't tell of some possibility that Strauss assumes is practically a certainty. If he had written a novel using his ideas, the setting and plotline would be rich and fascinating. As it is, this book is not even close to nonfiction, it's speculative opinion spouting.

    I've held off posting this for months because it breaks my heart to give a one star rating to a fellow Bible believer. But I value the truth, you, and your kids too much not to sound a warning. Check out the books Answers in Genesis and the Institute for Creation Research offer. They are far, far more careful how they present possibilities and the unknowns any glimpse at historical science offers.
