We’re excited that Dr. John Whitcomb, creationist theologian and coauthor of the seminal work The Genesis Flood, is visiting the Ark Encounter for a meet-and-greet and a book signing on June 30, 2018. Dr. Whitcomb (now in his 90s), together with the late Dr. Henry Morris, were really responsible for launching much of the modern creation movement with the publication of The Genesis Flood in the 1960s. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to meet a hero of the faith who has boldly stood on biblical authority and inspired a generation of scientists and laymen to do the same.

Original Cover of The Genesis Flood

The Genesis Flood by the late Dr. Henry Morris and Dr. John Whitcomb helped to launch much of the modern creation movement.

If you own a copy of The Genesis Flood, bring it with you when you visit the Ark Encounter, or purchase a copy at the ark. Between noon and 3 p.m., come to the Ark Encounter’s gift shop to meet Dr. Whitcomb and get an autograph. Be sure to bring your phone or camera to get your picture taken with Dr. Whitcomb inside Noah’s ark!

I will be at the ark with Dr. Whitcomb and will do a Facebook Live at noon on June 30 to highlight Dr. Whitcomb’s visit. If you can’t make it to the Ark in person, be sure to tune in for the live broadcast on my Facebook page. Come and meet both of us—we would love to see you there. The ark is in Williamstown, Kentucky, south of Cincinnati, right off I-75 at exit 154.

Dr. Whitcomb attended the Ark Encounter’s grand opening almost two years ago and participated in the dedication. Here is a photo of Dr. Whitcomb and his wife, Norma, inside the ark that day, along with popular author and pastor Tim LaHaye, who passed away later that month.

You can learn more about Dr. Whitcomb and the remarkable, lasting impact of The Genesis Flood in this DVD of a presentation he gave during our 2005 Mega Conference in Lynchburg, Virginia. The DVD, The History and Impact of “The Genesis Flood” is available at our online store.
