Wade E. Miller, Ph.D., is an emeritus professor of Paleontology and Geology at Brigham Young University (BYU). His fascinating book gives the reader new insights about the creation of the earth, and makes it a must have book for every LDS family library. For untold generations people have wondered how scientific findings could be reconciled with information given in scriptures. As new scientific truths were discovered, people wondered which is correct – science or religion? This debate over the years has ever become more heated. The book, “Creation of the Earth for Man,” shows that there is no need to make a choice between the two. There is compatibility between the two realms. Step by step, scriptural references are compared with current scientific thought. The compatibility is explained. Items that are covered in the book include how the earth was created and when, the concept of time, life on earth and how it might have originated, how the earth’s resources important for man came to be, the reasonability of Noah’s Flood, the earth divided in the days of Peleg, the great destructions stated in 3rd Nephi, and more. The reader should gain a greater appreciation of how wonderful a world God created for us and of His power and wisdom. Wade E. Miller. Highland, UT: Miller Enterprises, 2010.
