Old-Earth Creationism on Trial: The Verdict Is In authors, Tim Chaffey and Jason Lisle, make the convincing argument that creation was completed in six twenty-four hour days. Their values are in opposition to the popular scientific belief that the earth is billions of years old. The authors stress that Scripture is trustworthy and should not be reinterpreted to compliment faulty scientific opinions.

The book contains a broad range of topics dealing with both theological concerns and scientific examinations. The authors communicate firmly and with conviction, without demeaning those with differing opinions. The book is structured in such a way that novices are able to follow the logic and handle the scientific language.

Tim Chaffey earned a BS and a MA in biblical and theological studies. He also holds a Master of Divinity degree with a concentration in theology and apologetics from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. His co-author, Jason Lisle, earned his bachelor’s degree in physics and astronomy from Ohio Wesleyan University. He received his master’s degree and PhD in astrophysics from the University of Colorado. He is currently a research scientist with Answers in Genesis Ministries.

Romans 1:20 states, “For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—His eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.” The vastness of creation is a testimony to the power and glory of God. The authors share the foundational message of a six-day creation and a Sabbath day rest for a purpose. It is evident that the authors’ motivations are to bring glory to God and to challenge anyone holding to the old-earth view.

Although the authors mention some of the current held beliefs of old-earth followers, they quickly negate those beliefs. If the reader desires an unbiased overview of this subject, this book is not recommended. The authors remind the Christian community of its duty to educate itself about such subjects. This debate over the age of the earth is heated and is at the forefront of scientific research. It will be beneficial for Christians to educate themselves, and this book will introduce the topic effectively. – Tamara Peachy,
