A fascinating history of the pre-Darwinian controversy between secular scientists and "scriptural geologists"--- believers in a young Earth. Mortenson's thoroughly researched study examines the reasons behind the beliefs early 19th-century English Christians held about the Earth's age; the controversy that rocked the English church before publication of Darwin's book; and the part the scriptural geologists played in the debate. A must-read for any creationist! 300 pages, softcover from Master Books.
