    A Provocative Consideration of Noah's Flood

    Montgomery weaves his personal experience, the history of geology, biblical interpretation, and the interaction of science and Christian faith into a provocative and illuminating consideration of the Noah’s Flood narrative and its interpretation. He counters current Creationist claims in a balanced and respectful manner and highlights how questions from the Church spurred on geology and how geology spurred on theology and biblical interpretation. His consideration of flood legends across the globe with respect to geological events possibly related to the legends points to a multifaceted, informed understanding of human collective memory, culture, and understanding (including scientific understanding). This book is wonderfully written, though a bit redundant, and is readily accessible with little geologic, historical, and biblical background necessary. For those adept in these areas, the book is a nice review of the basics and certainly easily informs one on the less familiar areas. I highly recommend the book for those interested in the Creationist view, historical geology, the interaction of faith and science, the history of science, and flood legends.

    Montgomery tells how various individuals and cultures attempted

    Montgomery tells how various individuals and cultures attempted to explain Noah's flood, and along the way discovered the science of geology. He also explores the flood stories told by many cultures and offers explanations that involve local flood events, which are very likely, as opposed to a global flood which lacks evidence. The narrative flows well, making for a quick enjoyable read.
