Dr. John Whitcomb: August 10, 2015

Welcome to a very special edition of “Encounter God’s Truth” as we consider the Ark Encounter, a full-scale, modern-day rebuilding of Noah’s Ark in Williamstown, Kentucky. Before we play the historic interview that took place there between Dr. John Whitcomb and Answers in Genesis president Ken Ham, we go inside Prairie Baptist Church in Noblesville, Indiana, to hear Dr. Whitcomb speak about the Ark Encounter and relate it to the important Biblical themes of Noah’s Ark and the Genesis Flood. We thank the church for allowing us to share this sermon through this broadcast. Then, we travel high above the Ark Encounter construction site to listen in on this once-in-a-lifetime conversation—which was held shortly before Dr. Whitcomb’s 91st birthday. We trust that it will encourage all who hear. We want to thank Answers in Genesis for permitting us to bring you all of this material related to the Ark Encounter. As host Wayne Shepherd notes, we hope that it serves to remind you that God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end!
