  • How Noah's Flood Shaped Our Earth

    This book will give you a new appreciation for the power and impact of Noah’s Flood—a pivotal event in the history of our planet. It was the biblical Flood, not millions of years, that deposited thousands of meters of folded, bent, and twisted rock strata all over the earth, and the billions of fossils contained therein.


    Researchers Oard and Reed have done a marvelous job compiling geological evidence for the Flood, as well as providing an easily-understood interpretation of the dynamic processes that occurred before, during, and after the Flood, which radically altered the planet.


    The Scriptures and your faith will come alive as you see the evidence for Noah’s Flood throughout the earth.

  • Rocks Aren't Clocks

    Does the geological column prove that the earth is billions of years old? Is the geological column even a reality? These are questions that are too often assumed as the rock layers are presented as if they self-evidently prove the vast ages that evolutionism requires.


    Geologist John Reed unravels the geological column in a style that is accessible to laypeople and specialists alike, revealing the philosophical assumptions that are critical to questions about the time scale. This long-overdue, thorough critique of the secular view of prehistory is up-to-date with the latest changes in thinking, and the most recent attempts to overcome its philosophical shortcomings.
