Invented in 1814, “the gap theory” attempted to incorporate the idea of an old earth into the Bible. This theory, however, was contradictory to the historical position of the Christian church. In this book, Dr. Hovind and Stephen Lawwell successfully take the reader through the history and reasoning behind the gap theory. Their careful research also gives answers to many questions inquisitive Christians may have. Using the Bible and key scripture as their source for the truth, the authors expose the many ways the gap theory violates God’s Word.
