Know the facts about the most impacting natural catastrophe of all time!

This interesting book provides the biblical and scientific answers you need to understand and intelligently discuss the Flood, the Ark, and the planet-changing results of God’s judgment. Biblically and scientifically disproves the claims of those who discount the Flood or limit it to Mesopotamia / Radiates unshakable faith in the Word of God!

Whitcomb maintains with vigor that the Bible declares and affirms a supernatural, catastrophic flood of worldwide proportions, a delaration that is corroborated by scientific observations that are not warped by a uniformitarian bias in geology. This new, revised version includes over thirty major revisions, improved illustrations and photos, new charts, and minor improvements throughout.


“We have been living in an age of deep skepticism. A century of evolutionary philosophy, with its seeds of naturalism and atheism, has yielded the bitter fruits of violence, nonmoralism, and despair…This brief but incisive book by John Whitcomb expounds with no uncertain sound the biblical record of that great hydrodynamic convulsion with which God judged the wickedness of the antediluvian world…It is a high privilege to recommend, with real enthusiasm, the second edition of this outstanding book by John C. Whitcomb, a man who, like Apollos, is ‘mighty in the scriptures’ and ‘fervent in the spirit’…”
