This book is an excellent overview of old-earth beliefs from a Progressive Creationist. We recommend this as a starting point for anyone investigating old earth creationism. From the Publisher--One of the most commonly held beliefs among Christians and non-Christians alike is that science and Scripture absolutely and irreconcilably contradict each other about the age of the earth. While most scientists affirm an old universe theory, may Christians favor a young universe interpretation. Somewhere in between, millions of devout Christians who respect scientific findings are deeply and painfully torn. How can we love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength if we must separate our minds from our faith? asks Dr. Hugh Ross, an astrophysicist and a Bible-believing Christian. Such a separation violates the very meaning of faith. In Creation and Time, Dr. Ross provides a solution to the creation-date controversy that requires no compromise by either the scientist trusting in the facts of nature or the Christian holding to the inerrancy of Scripture.
