My Review:
 This is a very interesting book used to dispell some of the myths that a being brought to light by many in our world and communities. Don Landis along with some students from the Jackson Hole Bible College decided to take their travels around North America even into Central America on their quest to prove the Bible's validity. From what I read in this book they have done a great job of it. The author has addressed many of the different topics that have questioned a lot of us. One being why many of men in the Bible lived many, many years. I mean have you ever seen a 900 something year old man? I haven't but what an amazing site it would be. The author also points out that because of the recent advances in technology which would go to assume that we are more intelligent than in years past. Actually, points to the contrary. Because of the most recent advancement being computers and our relying on them so much. This actually shows a decline in our mental performance and discipline.
 What is so ironic about that last statement is that my husband and I had the same thought on it. We have felt for a long time that with all the advancements in technology we have become a weakened as a society. When we look back in Bible to Adam's time, Noah's time these men built things with their own hands. The Tower of Babel for instance, is stated by the author as still existing and is spread out among the entire earth. What an amazing reveal. Let me tell you that this is a book on the subject of apologetics. It is used as a resource to expand your knowledge of the Bible not to distort it. It is a great reference book. And it has some amazing photographs taken from around the world. This is a very informative book and is a great addition to your library.
