Fossils are the remains or traces of creatures that lived in the past, and they tell a fascinating story—the story of a world that was destroyed by the Genesis Flood and its remarkable recovery.
In this book you will:
- Find out what fossils are and how they formed.
- Learn what fossils reveal about the incredible array of life that God created in the beginning.
- Discover lost worlds populated by extraordinary creatures, most now extinct.
From the weird sea creatures that swarmed in the shallow oceans and the strange ‘fishopods’ that lurked in the weed-infested waters of a floating forest, to the awe-inspiring dinosaurs, pterosaurs, and mammals that dominated much of the land, you’ll be enthralled as you discover God’s creation in a whole new way.
With the help of God’s Word and the clues that the latest scientific discoveries provide this book reveals a remarkable picture of the early earth. You will also learn what fossils tell us about the destruction of the world during the Flood, and how Noah, his family, and the animals on the ark emerged to face much that was new and unfamiliar—a warm, wet world that dried and cooled until eventually ice gripped the northern continents.
Informed by the latest creationist scholarship and richly illustrated with over 200 watercolor paintings—including many stunning dioramas—this book reconstructs the world before and after the Genesis Flood in unprecedented depth and detail and will excite and educate your family.
