There is one matter upon which both creationists and evolutionists agree. It is this: Time is absolutely crucial to the evolutionary scheme. Without long eras of time—billions of years—there is utterly no way to accommodate the theory of evolution. In this book, Wayne Jackson, drawing upon historical, scientific, and biblical evidence, demonstrates that a fair consideration of all the facts can only lead to the conclusion that the earth is relatively young; it is not billions of years old. One of the values of this book is that it takes some technical and difficult subject matter and explains it in simple terms that the non-specialist can easily understand.
