Coming to Grips with Genesis
by  Dr. Terry Mortenson and Dr. Thane Hutcherson Ury
450 pages Publisher: Master Books

Fourteen scholars present rigorous biblical and theological
arguments in favor of a young earth and global Flood and also address a number of contemporary old-earth interpretations of Genesis. This unique, substantial, historical, theological, and exegetical defense of the literal history of Genesis 1–11 is designed for seminary professors and students, pastors, and missionaries, as well as laypeople and students who want to dig deeper into Scripture.
