Details

Dr. Terry Mortenson introduces the men and summarizes the theories that helped popularize the unbiblical idea of millions of years of earth history. Informing you about the “scriptural geologists” who opposed the old-earth geology in the early 19th century, he shows that the battle over the age of the earth is a worldview conflict of foundational importance. With a summary of some of the many godly Christian leaders over the past 150 years who have compromised with millions of years, he gives a critically needed historical context for understanding why the authority of Scripture is so undermined in the Church today and how this relates to the proclamation of the gospel. Great for teens and adults, especially pastors.
