- “Don’t Miss the Boat” by Paul Taylor by tickmenot on 10/28/2013
This book has great information about the reality of the flood account given in the Bible. The author uses the Bible as the only completely accurate source for the incident. He makes the point that if the scriptural account of the flood doesn’t fit the scientific explanation, throw out the scientific model, and keep the Biblical description. Mr. Taylor states that when explaining the flood, the Bible is always the true source. If what we are discovering does not line-up with the Bible, then our hypothesis is wrong, or the data needed is incomplete.
The author gives an in-depth analysis of how the flood occurred, and his conjectures line-up with a literal interpretation of the Biblical flood. He covers many details. For the most part, the commentaries are understandable, although a scant amount of the information is complicated. Surprisingly, the author explains how carbon dating can have a place in a Biblical flood account. Mr. Taylor was very thorough in addressing objections that have been made against accepting the Biblical testimony.
I am very happy to have an intelligent book about the Biblical flood. It is refreshing to have the Bible placed as the highest authority on a subject. Obviously the author cares a great deal about the truth of the Bible, and spent a lot of work on this subject. However, I was put-off at the end of the book when the author talked about an individual obtaining salvation from God. Someone who wants to become a follower of Christ should be given the steps to do it. Verbatim words are not necessary. A general outline of what to do would not take away any “genuineness” on the part of the person seeking God. I give this book 4 stars.
The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book through Master Books, a division of New Leaf Publishing for the purpose of review. All opinions expressed are my own, and I have not been compensated in any other manner. Despite my receiving the book free, it has not influenced my judgment, and I have given an honest opinion.
