Summary
"The Flood as described in the Book of Genesis not only shaped the global landscape; it is an event that literally forms our understanding of early biblical history. Now an experienced team of scientists and theologians have written a definitive account of the Genesis Flood with detailed research into the original biblical text and evidences unlocked by modern science and study, including: Technical aspects of the chronology, historicity, and significance of understanding this landmark event, including what we can learn from the Hebrew words used to describe it. Numerous geological, geophysical, and paleontological indications pointing to the reality and global scope of the Flood. How and why their exhaustive research began, putting forth objectives, criticisms they would address, as well as identifying obstacles to be resolved. Often recounted and discounted as just a myth or children's story, what we find with deeper study is instead a cataclysmic event - one that truly wiped out life on our planet with the exception of those preserved through God's plan. The devastation the Genesis Flood wreaked upon a rebellious world remains an important part of the biblical narrative. We should understand for what it was - a divine act of judgment on a sin-immersed world."--Publisher
