God’s people have been sold a bill of goods. If you think about it at all, evolution could not be true. If this young earth is really billions of years old, then God is a liar. You know that isn’t true. It’s the training place of mankind.
As the designed training place of mankind, we need to understand what God did
This book tells the tale of God’s creation lovingly, by a man who only recently came to his senses. It had been obvious when he visited the Grand Canyon that this hadn’t happened over countless millennia. It had happened quickly with a massive flood of water. God made man. We didn’t come from apes. The first two chapters of Genesis make excellent scientific sense when you understand how God did it and why He did it in the order it was done. It’s amazing how clear it is when a believer explains how it works. Join David on a glorious trip through the 7,000 years of creation. Yes, there is only one millennium left for this one. Then this training place is dissolved in fire and replaced with what we commonly call heaven. God calls it a new creation.
Rejoice in the glory of what He has done for us!
This is a non-scientific explanation of the creationist viewpoint that the Bible is basically a literal guide to past and future history. It’s directed at curious people who have never heard how God put together the creation and why. It’s not comprehensive. It’s a fun read.
The Training Place of Mankind is available at all the normal online venues in print, iBooks, Kobo, Nook, Kindle, and audio [Amazon or iTunes] versions
Here’s a quote from Michael Findley’s posting on Elk Jerky for the Soul.
“The creation week: 4,000 B.C. might just be the best nine-page overview of the creation week available”
“If you have never looked at an overview of God’s Word, or you know someone like this, this book is a must read. If you know someone who is curious about the Bible but has never read it, then this book is a must read for them.
It is both an easy, enjoyable read and introduces most major topics of the Word of God in a single book. Not to mislead anyone; this is neither a theology book nor a Bible Doctrines overview. More than half of this brief book is devoted to the book of Genesis, creation, the flood, the birth of civilization and the beginning of the Jewish nation.”
Kelsey Bryant said this:
This is a well-written, thought-provoking little book that packs in a lot of information. It’s an overview of history from the perspective of God’s Word, focusing on the eras that we know the least about: early history before Abraham, and the future that can only be deduced from Biblical prophecy. The author writes with a great respect and passion for the Bible and relates concrete information in a personal, conversational style. Something on almost every page stimulates you, making you think, for example, “I want to know more about that!” or, “God is so awesome!” The author cites all his sources so you can easily trace his explanations. He often quotes from creation scientists like Dr. Walter Brown and the staff of Answers in Genesis. He provides tons of evidence for Creation and the Flood. I may not have agreed with every conclusion (and the author says right off that you shouldn’t blindly accept all he says), but I believe this book expresses the truths that everyone should know, including “the glorious truth that creationism makes sense” (quote from book). This is a great read for anyone who wants to “participate” (and not get overwhelmed with complex scientific facts!) in a conversation about our origins and our future according to the Bible.
