In Tibet, geologist David R.Montgomery heard a local story about a great flood that bore a strikingsimilarity to Noah's Flood. Intrigued, Montgomery began investigating theworld's flood stories and-drawing from historic works by theologians, naturalphilosophers, and scientists-discovered the counterintuitive role Noah's Floodplayed in the development of both geology and creationism. Steno, thegrandfather of geology, even invoked the Flood in laying geology's foundingprinciples based on his observations of northern Italian landscapes. Centurieslater, the founders of modern creationism based their irrational view of aglobal flood on a perceptive critique of geology. With an explorer's eye and arefreshing approach to both faith and science, Montgomery takes readers on ajourney across landscapes and cultures. In the process we discover the illusivenature of truth, whether viewed through the lens of science or religion, andhow it changed through history and continues changing, even today.
