It s the exciting story of fossils: How were they formed? Where are they found? How old are they? How are they extracted? This one-of-a-kind book explains how coal and oil are formed, how the Grand Canyon was created, how to interpret the geologic column from a creationist perspective, and how to identify various fossils. It refutes the horse and whale evolutionary models and explains the four Cs of biblical creation and compares this model with evolution s model of time, chance, struggle, and death. Filled with scores of full-color photos and illustrations, this quality book explains everything about fossils from a creationist perspective while also demonstrating the shortcomings of the evolutionary model of fossils. Dr. Gary Parker relies upon not only a thorough education of paleontology, but also many years of experience in the field to pen this scholarly work. Here are the scientific answers to the puzzling questions about fossils that even non-scientists can understand. 8 1/2 x 11 Casebound 80 pages"...

The Fossil Book Reviews
A strange mix of science and Christianity. "...just wait; science will eventually catch up and find that God's Word has been right all along." Interesting choice for the non-fiction section...
"The Fossil Book" is a nonfiction book about fossil formation, types, and collection. The authors assumed they had a Christian audience, but they still gave solid, respectful reasons for why they believe Flood Geology is the better explanation for how most fossils were formed. They clearly explained each topic and defined the few scientific terms in the text (though there's also a glossary in the back). The book is suitable for 10- or 11-year-olds on up.There were full color pictures and illustrations. In the back, there's a 12 by 24 inch pull-out full-color poster with pictures from the book. Overall, I'd highly recommend this book to children and adults who are interested in fossils and fossil hunting.Chapter One explained what a fossil is, what rocks they're found in, how they're formed, and the types of fossils (including fossil fuels). Chapter Two explained what the Geologic Column is and compared Evolutionist and Flood Geologist interpretations of fossils. Chapter Three briefly covered the problems with the evolutionary interpretation of fossils and why the evidence better fits the Flood Geologist explanation. It then discussed the Grand Canyon's formation and rock layers.Chapter Four covered invertebrate fossils. Chapter Five covered vertebrate fossils and discussed intermediate fossils and fossil sequences. The final section described how to do fossil hunting and collection (where to look, permits needed, tools used, and how to collect, store, and display them).
Riddled with spelling errors, missing/incomplete words, and just flat out condescending in its attitude towards evolutionary scientists, this book was a real dud. Instead of presenting a factual argument for Creationism, it often resorted to "Look how embarrassed those other scientists are when they find out they're wrong." That is kind of the beauty of, well, science. You hypothesize and then you change your theories to reflect new knowledge. The authors also make a habit of redefining things when it suits their needs and ignore all the evidence of a universe that is billions of years old.
I'm giving this a low rating primarily because I don't agree with the opinions it's throwing out there, but also because of various misspellings, fairly lame artwork (though, there are some nice photos), inaccurate and inconsistent definitions of 'science' and 'evolution,' and the overt, constant bashing of evolutionists. There are a few decent descriptions of animals, fossils, and natural processes in here, but that's where the value ends....unless you believe in Creationism. Then this is the 'science' book for you.
