It has been 12 weeks since our book, "The Grand Canyon: Monument to an Ancient Earth" was released and I am happy to report that the response has been unbelievably positive. National news media is beginning to notice the value of it, which shows clearly but in a respectful manner how ideas associated with a "young earth" are misguided and just plain wrong. The book is the culmination of over five years of work from eleven co-authors, myself included. I wrote the Foreword to the book and am a co-author on Chapters 1 and 19.
I like to share with readers a few of the reviews our book has received so far. But before I do, just realize that many people including many open-minded Christians, already know that the preposterous idea that Noah's Flood could have created the Grand Canyon in just one year (and not just the hole in the ground but the rock layers too) is a sham and a falsehood for which there is absolutely no evidence. You can see a partial list of the endorsements our book has received here:

As for the reviews see all seventeen reviews we have received so far on our Amazon page here. All of these are 5 Stars!
In the July/August edition of "Church and State," we have this review here.
Locally, our book was reviewed in The Grand Canyon news here and the The Arizona Daily Sun (Flagstaff) here.
Lastly, I have had many friends and colleagues tell me that they cannot believe that a book like this is necessary. They are astounded that ideas put forth by Young Earth Creationists (YEC's) are given much credence. And yet, if you think of the giant recreation of "Noah's Ark" that opened this week in Kentucky, you can see that people like Ken Hamm are spending incredible amounts of money to further these misguided claims. (See articles in the New York Times and Washington Post here and here.) Rob Boston responds to the hoopla about the opening of the Ark in Kentucky with this missive and made a plug for our book as well here. As you look at this $102 million construction, and think of the financial and human resources it took to complete, we are supposed to believe that a family of eight built something like this to this scale 4,000 years ago?
Here are a few peeks into our book. The table of contents is shown here:
