    The Genesis Flood examines almost all the issues over which mainstream scientists and even some theologians doubt the literal truth of the Bible where it addresses the creation of the world, the universal flood and its aftermath. Since this is a reprint of the original book written in 1961 and not a revision, all the references to scientific papers have dates in the 1950s and 60s, which opens the possibility that some of the supporting evidence and arguments may have been superseded. In particular the authors cast doubt on the accuracy of carbon dating techniques on the grounds that its practitioners assumed that the C14 content of the atmosphere had remained constant, whereas today historical data on the levels of atmospheric C14 going back thousands of years have been produced (at least for northern Europe) based on tree dendrochronology, and these variations are allowed for (or at least they are supposed to be). Furthermore, the authors were not to know that by 2013 dendrochronologists would be claiming to have extensive evidence of trees that had grown nearly 14,000 years ago, so that issue has not been addressed in this book. Personally I can't see the point of their highlighting the inaccuracies of radiometry and carbon dating when they went on to demonstrate that if there was a universal flood and if God did create everything supernaturally then both these dating methods would be based on completely false assumptions and would inevitably give completely false results. Apart from these criticisms I would thoroughly recommend reading this book to anyone who in interested in the possibility that the Bible's account of creation might after all be true. Its comprehensive contents list makes it particularly useful for reference purposes. It was the first book to address seriously the apparent conflict between the Bible and science, and in my view it did an amazingly good job of it.

    I think it is most interesting that off all of the reviews of this book, all are either 5 stars or 1 star...the average is 3.I choose to give it 3 because I think that is an accurate reflection of it's worth - the average of what people from radically different backgrounds believe is often a good approximation.This book is interesting, it symbolises the 'scientific' creationist stance on the subject of the flood. This stance is a peculiar one, but it exists nonetheless and this book provides an excellent summary of the literature.It will obviously be taken in a completely way depending on who is reading it. Those who stand on the Christian side of the debate will likely see a resounding scientific 'proof' for the flood and love this book. Those who are reading it as an effort at researching the creationist standpoint from non-creationist background will hate it.However, I encourage an attempt at an open mind by all involved. This book is what it claims to be - it is a brief review of the current scientific-creationism literature on the story of the biblical flood. It is not thorough as that would be impossible (as it would with any scientific or religious topic) and it is certainly not balanced.If you genuinely are seeking a better understanding of this topic, I advise you read this book as one of several - no one will ever be unbalanced on this topic, and a book directed at the non-scientific populous will not contain strong scientific arguments (just read any popular evolution book that comes out of Oxford to see this). This book is an excellent start as it is clearly biased - it is far better to read two books - one from each side - than to read one 'unbiased' one.In summary, this book is an interesting read, it does what it claims, and it is well written. I cannot give it more stars as it does miss some key points and it does reference since disproved theories. However, I feel that it is a good book for an understanding of this side of the debate and a worthy book for anyone interested to read once.If you are a creationist you will love itIf you are a non-creationist you will hate itReally you should see it for what it is - mid-range and a little mediocreEnjoy
