Archaeology – World of the Bible (Randall Price)  


These books will give a good overview of Creation Science.  However, the topic is so broad, these only scratch the surface of the scientific information for a cataclysmic creation.  Many of the sources on the previous page have catalogs of books and videos that cover specific subjects in great detail (e.g., History of Science and Scientists, Creation Science, Astrophysics, Astronomy, Geology, Catastrophe Creation Science Vs Gradualism, Radiometric Dating of Rocks and Fossils, Chronological Dating of the Earth, the Mount St. Helens Volcano Eruption Effects and Results, The Grand Canyon Geographic Record, the Great Ice Age Evidence, Physics, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biology, Microbiology, Genetics, RNA & DNA Studies, Mutation Studies, Origins of Life Studies, Evolutionism, Neo-Darwinian Evolutionary Theory, Anthropology, Fossil Record, Missing Links, So-called Ape Men, Scopes Monkey Trial, Dinosaurs, Archaeology, Past Civilizations, the Genesis Flood, Noah’s Ark, The Bible, etc.).

  • Unlocking the Mysteries of Creation, by Dennis R. Petersen

Good introduction text.  Covers a very broad span of subjects and scientific information.  Written for most ages (junior high up).  Presents an abundant amount of information and presents the Canopy Theory.  I believe the Canopy Theory has some basic problems, but the book is a very good book overall introduction for all ages.

  • In The Beginning, by Dr. Walter Brown

Good scientific reference.  The very broad span of materials and scientific information covered.  Written for adults (high school up). Presents an abundant amount of information and presents the Hydro-Plate Theory.  This is a very good reference book.

Dr. John Baumgardner of Los Alamos National Laboratories has the best creation model that I have seen that matches the scientific evidence and data.  It is based on tectonic plate subduction causing the flood.
