Dragons of the Deep: Ocean Monsters Past and Present
This one-of-a-kind book will thrill Christians and non-Christians alike, with its emphasis on ancient “sea monsters,” those fearsome and marvelous creatures that once roamed the oceans.
From the predator Mosasaurus, called the ocean equivalent of T. Rex, to the gigantic turtle Archelon, the beasts who glided through the planet’s oceans no doubt were the inspiration for ancient sightings by mariners who described fantastic encounters on the open ocean.
Wieland’s riveting text and easy descriptions are complemented by the beautiful full-color illustrations by acclaimed artist Darrell Wiskur. Readers will be amazed that these complex, huge beasts actually lived. The author provides a thoroughly biblical analysis of them as well, insisting that these “dragons of the sea” came into existence during the creation week as outlined in Genesis.
• Amazing colorful illustrations of sea monsters that actually lived in the oceans
• Come face-to-face with giant sharks that could chomp a fishing boat in a single bite!
• See how huge these colossal creatures really were when compared to familiar objects (like school buses!)
• Learn how and where to find the fossils of these water-dwelling reptiles
• Could some of these menacing monsters still inhabit the oceans today?
About the Author
Carl Wieland, MB, BS, served as the Managing Director of Creation Ministries International (Australia) for 28 years and retired in 2015. He is also the founding editor of Creation magazine. Dr. Wieland began as an atheist, and later came to a saving understanding of God. In 1977, he founded the Creation Science Association in Australia. One year later, he founded Ex Nihilo, the journal that would later become TJ and finally Creation. In 1979-80 the CSA joined forces with another organization founded by Ken Ham and John Mackay. Wieland turned over control of Ex Nihilo over to the new CSF. In 1987 he became acting director of CSF and expanded it into other territories of the Commonwealth of Nations.
Evolutionists hold that this record represents a history of life on Earth over hundreds of millions of years, and used as evidence to support that organisms have evolved from simple to more complex forms. However, most creationists believe that the vast majority of the fossils are instead the remains of plant and animals that died during the Biblical global flood.
