Genesis records the history of a worldwide watery cataclysm that destroyed almost all land-dwelling creatures and completely reshaped Earth's surface. Cultures around the world retain the memory of this great deluge, but secular geologists insist it's a myth - there never was a global flood. But they've never looked at the rock record across multiple continents simultaneously.
ICR geologist Dr. Timothy Clarey does just this in Carved in Stone: Geological Evidence of the Worldwide Flood. With an oil industry background, Dr. Clarey utilizes his understanding of oil well and seismic data to see what the rock strata actually reveal about Earth's past. Many people might be surprised by what he finds.
Rather than reflecting millions or billions of years, Earth's rock record demonstrates that a global flood occurred just thousands of years ago. Carved in Stone showcases the geological data compiled across North America, South America, and Africa, with more discoveries to come as Dr. Clarey works through the remaining continents.
Carved in Stone examines the sedimentary rock record continent by continent, layer by layer. The data provide clear geological evidence of a year-long progressive flood just as described in the Bible. Rock data do not lie.

Best explanation I've seen for the geologic record. Rocks may not lie, but it sure helps when they are interpreted from a foundation of historical truth. This book looks at the record of geologic sequences and uses data -- much of it from the petroleum industry -- to make a case that the rock record is a better match to the history of a global flood than to the long-ages explanations that we so often are taught in schools and from interpretive signs in national parks.
This is the best book that I've seen on its topic, and provides an amazingly clear description of how catastrophic plate tectonics would have resulted in successive inundations of the continents leading to the six major geologic sequences that we see in the rock record today. The author is honest, stays focused on his data, and is up front when he chooses to speculate on aspects of the geologic record that aren't yet clear.
This book is must read just for the data alone, and the understanding that it provides of the geologic sequences even apart from the question of whether they were laid down by a flood. The data though, does support flooding as recorded in historical book, Genesis. The author makes a strong case, and provides data, footnotes, and references that can help you to understand and internalize that case, and then to defend the flood as an historic event.
I'm enjoying the read. The book is essentially in three categories. The first section gives you some beforehand knowledge of geology. The second is about the flood itself. The third is post-flood topics and miscellaneous. Thanks Dr. Clarey!
