It was announced this morning by Whitcomb Ministries Inc that theologian Dr. John Whitcomb, the co-author of The Genesis Flood and a giant in the modern creation movement, died last night. He was 95 years old. His co-author Dr. Henry Morris died in 2006. They are generally considered to be the fathers of modern creationism and young earth creationism.
Their book starts with the premise that the Bible is the inerrant, infallible word of god and so is the true history of the universe. In it Morris assures readers that “evidences of full divine inspiration of Scripture are far weightier than the evidences for any fact of science.”
Whitcombe’s section provides Biblical arguments for a global flood and dismisses all theories of a local flood
Published in 1961 The Genesis Flood invigorated the young earth Christians and all who take the Bible literally and is still in print today. New and used copies can be purchased from Amazon.
From it have sprung such wonders as the Answers in Genesis Creation “Museum” and the ineffable Ark Encounter, a full size, exact copy of Noah’s Ark, firmly supported on concrete foundations.
