by Robert D. Carpenter, M.D. "Dr. Bob"
If evolutionary theories about the age of planet Earth are correct, why donít the findings of geologists bear them out? What the rocks tell us is something else entirely and to explain it, Dr. Carpenter presents a lucid, carefully substantiated investigation of our prehistory.
Through study and analysis of the Scriptures themselves and drawing upon the published research of others in the field, Dr. Carpenter offers a considerably more complex view of Creation than most of us grew up with. ďThe Scriptures donít lie,Ē Dr. Carpenter says. But they do need careful examination. Much went on between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2.
